Extract data of distinct cells in a jitter matrix

    Dear jitter-users,
    I'm working on a multichannel sound installation with the amplitude of each audio channel being controlled by the RGB values of specific points (X/Y) in a matrix (char, RGB Video). Which object(s) would you use for doing that? I imagine the solution is pretty easy, however I'm new to jitter and couldn't find anything on the web so far.
    Any hints are appreciated!

      Check the jit.matrix helpfile by alt/option + clicking a jit.matrix object (or right click -> "Open jit.matrix Help"), the solution is here. Simply send the following message to a jit.matrix: "getcell X Y" where X and Y are the coordinates of the cell you want the value from. Then you get the value from the rightmost outlet of the jit.matrix.
