Motion controlled video

    Me again! Newbie with Max MSP studying it at varsity!
    I'm busy using the cv.jit plug-ins to create a motion controlled video player.
    The problem is, I want it to detect motion above a certain value, then send one bang to a controller to either start or stop the video, adjust speed and so forth, problem is is that it bangs repeatedly, not allowing you to have a once off wave to interact with the video.
    I'm not explaining this well, attached is the patch! You do need to install the cv.jit plug-ins to use it!

      theres [onebang] object for a one bang solution.. something like this can solve the thing.. adjust the delay time to your taste for reopen the object... best!

      onebang is probably the way to go as @carsol mentioned. I would also suggest that you look into jit.slide just before you go into the jit.scissors object. that way you get a trail of pixels and you are more likely to get higher numbers. also this way you have a built in on and off ramp. plus it looks funky ;)
