Sending jit.qt.movie to a jit.window?

September 17, 2012 | 5:13 pm

I’m trying to send video from a jit.qt.movie object to a jit.window. It is reading the file but I’m only getting audio, any fix for this?

If you have not already done so, I recommend reading Jitter Tutorial 1: Playing a QuickTime Movie.

Here’s the most relevant text:

When an object receives outputmatrix or bang, it sends out a jit_matrix message without doing anything else.
So, in our example patch, the jit.qt.movie object is "playing" the QuickTime movie, constantly storing the current frame of video, but the jit.window object will only display something when it receives a jit_matrix message from the jit.qt.movie object. And that will only happen when jit.qt.movie receives the message bang (or outputmatrix). At that time, jit.window will display whatever frame of video happens to be currently playing in the movie (that is, the frame that’s currently stored by jit.qt.movie).
