CoverFlow interface


    Mar 19 2012 | 3:23 pm
    Hi all,
    Its been a while that I don't come here... I'm about to develop an interface somehow similar to mac's Cover Flow, to display many images moving right to left, zooming, etc... also i will run some videos in the background. Last time I worked on max I remember the best way to do that it would be by using jit.gl.multiple and a jit.gl.texture.
    I would like to know if anyone has some ideas to best approach such a patch. Any general recommendations?
    Please expert users, drop me a line just to know if I'm missing something important :)
    THANKS! j

      i think, that jit.gl.multiple + texture would be great. personaly only thing that i can reccomend is to put textures to poly :)

      i think the jit.anim.path object would be helpful for something like this.
      here's a patch showing the basics. let me know if you have any questions.

      Hey thanks so much napentro and Robert! Robert I'm looking at your patch. It looks like i will get some good tips there.
      It is about alpha issues in jit.gl.multiple. Feel free to have a look at it. thanks! j
