I'm a student and a beginner for Max/MSP/Jitter. my laptop is a PC and running a windows system.My Max Version is 4.5.1 and Jitter is 1.2.3(demo).
I'm trying to use a webcam (Logitech QuickCam) to capture the shadows of people.
I found the relevant topic in Tutorial 21 in Jitter Tutorial and topics. When I opened the 21jSequenceGrabbers.pat in Max/MSP, there were 3 examples. I double clicked on P example_1 , then a new window was opened. There was nothing happened when I clicked the getvdevlist message box to cause the Jit.qt.grab object to search for available video capture device. Is it the right way to connect jitter with a webcam?
The tutorial says( for my vesion) that Jit.qt.grab object requires a Quicktime and a 3 rd party QuickTime VDIG component under Windows. I have download a VDIG component at http://www.vdig.com/WinVDIG/install.html
and installed it at C://program files/ WinVDIG/. And I also have a QuickTime Player 7 which is installed at C://program files/Quicktime/. Now there are my questions:
1. Is the QuickTime supposed to be QuickTime pro 7?
2. Do you think the QuickTime 7 is matching my Max/MSP/Jitter version?
3. What do you think about "under Windows"? Do you think the two things(QuickTime and VDIG) should be in C://Windows directory?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
