Video stop motion help

October 20, 2009 | 2:06 pm

hello im looking to make a patch in jitter that will emulate this kind of thing found in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxfcSguy-TE&feature=related is the easiest way to do tis just with teh jit.qt.movie object and then triggering each sample with a step sequencer or such. ideally i would want an object that works in the same way that the groove~ object works as that works very well with sampling any help will be greatly appreaciated.

I’m not sure if this is what you’re looking for, but it sounds similar. I made a few patches (attached) that behave like wave~, play~ and groove~, but internally load movies (into jit.qt.movie and buffer~), and output the jitter matrix appropriately. This was as much in order to control video playback from audio signals, as it was to have a better control over movie audio than using spigot.

Enjoy!

one more question might seem kinda stupid but is there an argument that you can send into jit.qt.movie that allows you to just play the clip with a bang message or somethin would be similar to the startloop arugment in groove~ but without the loop argument being set. if u know what i mean basically it just plays through the clip once

A little thing I was playing with to do this kind of thing. Easy with keyboard input. I was trying to use TouchOSC, but can’t figure out how to use just the press, and not the release. I left both in.

1. Record or find video of the sounds being made.
2. Scrub through the video to find which frames the hits start at, either manually or with an algorithm and set up frame bangs for each.
3. Attach MIDI, OSC, or key presses to each frame bang you set up and then you can sequence your audio/video, or play it live!

Kind of fun, but very simple. If you want to play with the video file that I already have the patch set for, here it is: http://v8media.com/temp/video_sample.mov
