can I set up a patch that automatically save a jpg image?


    Sep 17 2007 | 3:10 am
    hi, experts I am setting up a patch to save a jpg image on my desktop from the "jit.qt.grab" function . I am successfully set up a patch to save the image manually on the desktop. Now I like to set up a patch that automatically save the file without clicking any keyboard. However, when the action trigger the function called "write 30. jpeg normal" it will pop out a window to confirm the saving location. so, my question is that is there a way I can use a different function to skip this "manual" step? or there is a code?!
    thank you so much for your help!!!

      hi Derek could you give me a guide that how do I use this patch?! I couldn't understand most of the objects in this sub_patch. is this the sub_patch for the write message? or it's substution for the entire set up that I had.
      thanks a lot!

      try adding this to your patch. change "image_name" in the sprintf to whatever you want to call the captures.

      Is it possible to do this so it writes over the same file each time? I've tried but it doesn't do anything. Either that or get max to delete all files upon close?
      Cheers

      Ah. No worries. jit.fprint does that nicely anyway.
      Cheers anyway.
