video manipulation through sensors?

October 10, 2006 | 11:32 pm

hi, i am looking for a patch that will allow me to control various elements of a video (color, intensity, pulling up specific clips and shifting layers) by detecting variations in sound, heartbeat, and/or proximity.
Anything patch that manipulates video based on sensor inputs would work, i think.
Also, curious as how to turn video into an abstract animation of blurred shapes and colors. i heard that there are some built in patches that can do this, but haven’t found them.

I have just started getting into Max, but have a pretty clear project in mind, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
thank you.

I’m afraid I can’t really help you apart from the obvious rerouting
input scales to different attributes of the video.
But I’m very interested in the heartbeat sensor you are going to use,
since I need one myself to get a project going.
Could you tell me something more about what type you use and how you
get it into max?

I’d be more then happy to help you ot with your sensor thingy, it’s
not that difficult except when you want to give it a structured
effect instead of randomness, but to get video to become abstract
animation isn’t that hard, it’s the apealing that is a bitch

best Regards
