reading in videos to jitter

Hi
I’m relatively new to maxmsp and jitter
and I want to read in a number of images into matrixset
automatically when I open my patches so that they’re ready to go when I open them.
But when I try typing in the file name into the read message box, max never finds the file for me. I’ve also tried using a url inside the message box and that doesn’t work either, nor did copying and pasting the parts of the max or jitter tutorials which read movies in. I have the student 9 month trial version of max and jitter perhaps this is the problem. I’d be very grateful for any help thanks.

post a patch, or see the jit.matrixset help file.
there are no limitations on the 9month student licence so its not the
software’s fault :)

btw.
generally, questions about jitter object go to the jitter forum.
