Saving window space
hi i want to built an 3 layer video mixer and need more space. Is ist possible to collapse one layer with the functions in one bpatcher and use a button to switch through the 3 layers with only use the one bpatcher as a mask for adjustmenst of the layer. instead of usung the 3 bpatchers beside?
Have you looked at the *very first* of the excellent Max tutorials on interfaces?
No i didnt look at this chapter. i will have a look, now.
Here’s a reply I posted to a different thread, but you can use the same technique to stack your bpatchers on top of each other, and interact with whichever you want by choosing its number from the tab at top. Note that you need to use scripting names for your bpatchers, like I did with the pictsliders—just check out the names in the Inspector, which are pictslider, pictslider, etc., so you’d replace them with whatever you want and access the number with the incredibly handy sprintf.
