Cool I didn’t know about the difference between the rate 0 message or stop and toggling off a qmetro. I just have a question, is the @unique 1 message also a good strategy in a situation where the movie rate is drive by datas (let’s say audio volume for example).

Hi Pietro. @unique 1 is could still be useful in this situation. The thing to keep in mind is that when @unique is set to 1, no matrix will be sent out in-between each different frame, which is important to note if you are doing processing down the line.

jit.qt.grab on mac or jit.dx.grab on Windows. Install Quicktime software first when on windows.

You should have a look at the help patch for jit.qt.grab, everything is inside…

use jit.grab. it’s a simplified object and a simplified help-patch.
if you are on 10.9, the object is even simpler (although things like the "settings" message won’t work).

thanks ,there is one thing that bother me now . I use my (Windows 7) computer to run jit.qt.grab, and it cannot be displayed image, cause I disable the computer’s built-in camera, and open my external camera, I don’t know where is the problem. However,if I use the camera of the computer .jit.window shows the image.
