Is it possible to use PhotoBooth video FX with Jitter???

    Is it possible to use the Video FX from photo booth in jitter. I am aiming at running 4 live feeds all with separate FX then crossfading between. How would i do this?
    Thanks All

      If you mean the Apple application PhotoBooth, then it's not possible. Perhaps you might want to investigate the various filters that Jitter provides [and, I suppose, have a look at what Freeframe stuff is out there, too] to see if Jitter might not already have what you need. -- on the floor there's a long wooden table/on the table there's an open book/ on the page there's a detailed drawing/and on the drawing is the name I took Gregory Taylor http://www.rtqe.net

      For the most part, I think Photobooth just uses Apple ImageUnits. Check out jit.gl.imageunit -> jit.gl.videoplane using alpha channel for blending between sources.

      I think it is possible, since photobooth uses GPU effects and jou can use the jit.imageunit to get these effects. but by defenition it is not using photobooth

      Remember too as last resort, you can usually use jit.desktop to get nearly anything displayable *into* jitter for analysis/filtering/etc.
      Controlling an outside app *from* max is another story (although seems to me I've read mention of AppleScript approaches to generating mouse/keyboard events from max sent into other apps? or no?)

      what about windows? i have no such object as imageunit. the background effect what intrests me the most. already found jit.chromakey but im not sure if that's the best solution.
