Easy, simple...JPEG display

    Jun 16 2006 | 2:07 am
    Hello I am just learning Max/MSP and am kind of stuck. I'm sure that this is really simple but I can't seem to find any mention of what I am trying to do in any of the Tutorials or Manuals. Any help is totally appreciated. Thanks in advance. I am experimenting with controlling video parameters with audio. I have built some things that do this in kind of cool ways with Movies in Jitter but I would like to try some things with just JPEGs. How do you display just a JPEG? I'd like to start with just having say, five different JPEG Images, each assigned to a certain range of frequency and I'd have a random pitch generator playing along with a corresponding JPEG. Thanks a lot for your help. -B

      You load it as you would any other movie, and start banging the jit.qt.movie object. Think of it as a movie with only one frame.

      I display jpegs using the following JS:
      var level = new JitterObject("jit.qt.movie"); level.read(homedir+"roundlevel_0"+levelarg+".jpg"); level.window = "water";

      Thanks a lot for the advice! It's a great start for me, I appreciate it. Java Script is way over my head right now but I'll keep the code for when and if I can ever get to working with it. Thanks again, -B
