Matrix Output from jit.window to jit.qt.record


    Dec 06 2013 | 11:46 pm
    Hi! I just started using Jitter and I want to record the Visuals I'm rendering in my jot.window!
    The closest I've come to figure it out was by using jit.qt.record but I could only get matrix to in by using a jit.pwindow, since it has a Matrix Out Cord.
    The problem is that the rendering visuals is not in the jit.pwindow, they're in the jit.window, but the jit.window does not have a Matrix Out Cord.
    How shall I solve this?

      Google "syphon recorder". HD recordings, as many fps as your system can go, Max msp modules already made to send your video over,and its free. Mac only though !

      I'm assuming this is with GL rendered visuals? [jit.gl.asyncread] is 1 way to get a matrix for recording.

      Andro, I guess it's an external program? I'll check it out, but I was thinking about a function inside Max! Thanks anyways!
      DTR, Yes, it's GL rendered visuals! Thank you! I'll look into it!

      The advantage of an external app like Syphon recorder is that it's likely a lot more efficient, ie. will not cause fps degradation or stuttering. Syphon is unique in that it passes your rendered output right there on the graphics card. Double efficient.

      The jit.gl.asyncread function worked fine! Thank you very much, but I will as you both suggest, look into Syphon too!
      Is there perhaps any way to record the audio along with the visuals? I'm aware that the audio itself is not a part of the Matrix, should I thereby post another topic about this matter?
      Thanks again!

      Install soundflower, then use syphon recorder (which records audio as well) and select soundflower as audio input.
