Controlling video trough potentiometer connected to arduino

    Mar 26 2012 | 9:27 pm
    Im new to the maxmsp world but i've a probably not so complicated issue. I want to control a video by vizzie with an potentiometer which is connected to my arduino uno. I have downloaded and installed maxuino to make this connection, but somehow there is no interaction between the potentiometer(on A2) and max msp anyhow. I've uploaded the firmata to the arduino, Does anybody can tell me how i should run the osc route? Anyone who can help me?
    Many thanks in advance,

      Works a charm.
      EDIT: sorry, classic case of 'not reading the post properly' there. If you connect the outlet of the Maxuino subpatcher to a [print] object once you've set up your potentiometer, you should be able to see the message it outputs and give [route] or [OSC-route] the suitable arguments
      You will need to send a message (detailed in the help file) to the Maxuino subpatcher first in order to 'turn on' the pin you're using too.

      Because I feel so bad for misreading your original post:

      Hi thanks for the quick respond. I can see what you mean, but i can't turn on the pin im using(A2). In the file I cannot doubleclick on the "maxuino-gui" button.

      Could it also be that it doesnt work on arduino Uno?

      Here's an old post about the Uno:
      Also, if you're unable to open the Maxuino GUI, make sure that the entire maxuino-009 folder is in your searchpath.

      Thanks dickmedd, i think I might have a problem with the serial ports actually. My arduino is on COM4 but suddenly disappears every now and then. Randomly it seems. Also a problem with uploading to my arduino sometimes; that it suddenly is not able to because it says that the COM4 is in use... Really strange
