Matrix~ or scripting in Jitter?

    Hi all, I am trying to do a sort of video patchbay in my vj app. I wonder if there is a jitter object that behaves like MSP matrix~, since it looks like I can't connect matrix~ outlets to objects whose inlets expect matrix/video streams. I would try with a jitter.matrix~ object to do this if it exists, or should I go the more time-consuming scripting way? Thank you, Ale

      Hi Alessandro, An important aspect of jitter to understand early on is that the messages passed along those green patch coords are just that, max messages. Don't let the greeness fool you, it just means it's a message starting with jit_matrix (and similarly for textures as jit_gl_texture). So, for routing and flow control all of the usual max objects will work on jitter messages. The equivalent max object for matrix~ is router. It should work nicely for you.
      best, wes
