This is my first post here. I'm looking into producing live visuals for a band I've begun working with and am wondering if max msp, jitter and particularly vizzie is going to allow me to do what I want to do.
I have a lot of questions but here are the main things I'm after knowing:
1. Can you control clips in vizzie using an audio input? Because I'm working with a live band (a jazz band) I'm looking to trigger clips using audio inputs from mics/mixing desk etc.
2. Can you do video transitions like 'Multiply' and 'screen' in max msp? This is fairly vital for what I want to do.
3. Can you alter the resolution of the vizzie output? 640 x 480 seems small for the quality of image I'm wanting to use.
4. I am not planning on using any additional effects to my video loops. I simply want to layer them up by multiplying them over each other. How many layers do you think are possible from a mid range computer?
I think that's it for now. Any advice at all would be really helpful. I guess I'm looking to see if the max msp system is the one to use before I start learning it.
