Attributes for jit.noise?

    May 06 2006 | 10:12 pm
    I'm interested in changing the number of planes and the size of the matrix from a jit.noise object in realtime. As far as I can see from the documentation, attributes are not implemented for jit.noise (?). Would it be possible to implement this feature?
    Thanks, Alexander

      Ahh, but they are. This is a good time to point out something that's crucial to understanding the structure of jitter. Almost all jitter objects have an internal matrix operator or mop object internal to them. It's the mop object that holds the planecount, type, and dim attributes. Since jit.noise has an instance of mop, it also has those attributes.
      A second crucial thing to point out is the attribute/message contextual menu. Once you know that this thing exists, your patching will never be the same. On a mac hit ctrl+option+click on a jitter object and on windows I think it's alt+shift+click (or right click). This will pull up a menu that tells you all of the attributes and messages the object support
      Alternaitively, you can send any jitter object the message getattributes and a list of attributes will come out of the last outlet. If you look at the jit.noise help page in your web browser, you will notice something that says "Matrix Operator: in[0] out[0]" You can click on "Matrix Operator" and see the help for the mop object.
      hope this helps, wes
