MAX MSP COLOUR DETECTION - Help needed
Dec 15 2015 | 2:46 am
Hi guys - I'm pretty new to Max so this may be quite a simple idea.
I''ve bult an additive synthesizer and I'm looking to use the jit.object(s) (for video-based colour detection) as a means of triggering user specificied notes on a kslider. I found a thread on here from a while back where someone managed to implement red, green and blue colour detection, my problem however is I'm not sure how to build colour detection for other colours such as yellow / purple / orange etc. I have tried numerous different ideas like obtaining the RGBA values from an exact colour - however when I implement these into my patch it doesn't work. I have also tried switching from RGBA to ARGB (for the jit.findbounds object), but his also had no effect.
Are there set values for particular colours that can be implemented, or is there a more complex issue concerning how the colour values need to be translated for the jit.findbounds object?
Any help on this would be really appreciated - I'm all out of ideas at the moment, and so were my tutors!
