    Hello board,
    I've been trying to build some effects for models in Jitter before (thread: https://cycling74.com/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=32513&start=0&rid=5118&S=2acef99bdc4239316a3a47066c54051f) but with limited success. This example features an apple with noise instead of z-coordinates. So far, I found a total of 4 ways to turn off my output when it shouldn't, to my knowledge.
    The following movie illustrates this: http://smadsteck.nl/Matrixmodel.mov
    - Attaching the jit.unpack to a jit.pwindow (did not always occur) - Moving another object connected to jit.unpack to the left of the bang object - Selecting a certain jit.pwindow - Sending an extra bang to the jit.noise object (even when disconnecting the original connection, it doesn't work)
    Does anyone have any idea what the logic behind this is? And can anyone reproduce this behavior? When checking on the matrix ids being passed around, all of them are different, so one shouldn't influence another. This makes it pretty impossible to create any kind of effect for me...
    And of course, here's the patch:
    Max Patcher
    In Max, select New From Clipboard.

      sorry, none of the methods listed in the patch caused my output to stop. all works as expected.
      mbp, os 10.5.2 max 4.6.3, jitter 1.6.3

      I've tried the patch on a different computer by now, and it didn't stop outputting on that one either. I might try reinstalling Max today, I have no idea what it could be...
      Thanks for checking anyway, Rob.

      I can reproduce on: Dual 2.5 GHz PowerPC G5, Mac OS 10.4.11
      I can not reproduce on: 2 x 2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon, Mac OS 10.4.11
      So maybe this is a PPC issue? Are you on PPC Bas?

      Sorry, forgot the versions:
      Max 4.6.3, Jitter 1.6.3 on both computers.

      I'm on:
      Quad 2.5 GHz PowerPC G5, Mac OS 10.4.11 Max 4.6.3, Jitter 1.6.3
      So from this enormous sample size we can conclude it indeed happens on powerpc only...
