Max 8.2 Jitter Tools package
Aug 24 2021 | 6:48 pm
The Max 8.2 beta release comes packed with tons of new features, including a new package for all you pixel pushers called Jitter Tools. The package contains abstractions, source code, help files and ref pages for a handful of Jitter related tools, intended to grow over time.
Currently the package contains the following projects:
- jit.gl.meshwarp - An incredibly cool object from the mind of Federico Foderaro, meshwarp is a customizable grid of points to deform a mesh and associated texture via mouse interaction. While the main use case is video mapping, the possibilities abound.
- jit.polymovie and jit.gl.polymovie - Inspired by polybuffer~, the 2 polymovie objects allow for easy loading and fast switching of groups of movie files. Additionally the object supports multi-head playback from a single source for added video madness.
- jit.gl.textureset - Well used by many a Jitter head, we've revamped the existing textureset example into a full fledged object. jit.matrixset type image store and recall capabilities, but for ultra-fast GPU based textures.
Each of these are demonstrated in the Jitter Tools launcher patch (Extras --> Jitter Tools Launch) and help files, so please take a look and let us know what you think!
