Jit.grab not working in standalone
Jul 09 2018 | 5:27 pm
I'm having trouble getting output from jit.grab in a standalone; it works fine as a patch in Max, and it was working as a standalone in an earlier iteration of this patch, but now I'm getting nothing, i.e. the iSight light is not coming on, and the pwindow remains black.
The capture part of the patch is not much more than the jit.grab.help file. I'm using the QT engine because i was having performance issues recording with avf. Any ideas? I've tried various options in the standalone object but nothing seems to helping.
Whilst I'm here, another observation (bug?) with jit.grab - if Max is open when I shut down my Mac, next time I reboot jit.grab only shows DV Video and IIDC Firewire as the only options for vdev, even if I refresh the menus, so I get no output (incidentally, the same thing happens if I check copysupport in Standalone). Quitting re-booting Max returns the FaceTime HD option.
