I'm an old hat at MAX/MSP but very new to Jitter. I am working on a dance piece and would like to track a bright point on the dancer (I can do that part in a variety of ways) that creates a projected line or 'ribbon' as that point moves. Ideally, the ribbon would be erasing the oldest points to keep a maximum length, though I could also use an 'erase' if necessary. Another nice touch would be to vary the ribbon's thickness by the mass or speed of the centroid I am tracking.
I've looked at a variety of approaches on this forum, but have either missed or not been able to connect all the dots from the various approaches to do what I want. I've looked at jit.slide examples, jit.gl.slab, jit.gl.sketch examples, downloaded the cv.jit objects, and looked at most of the posts for generating 'trails,' though I would like to be actually drawing, and not blurring movs.
If there are any good examples out there that can be shared, or that I have missed on this forum, please let me know. I'm a week into this and my deadline approaches quickly.
