I couldn't find anything that touched on this subject.
I'm a complete newbie at using Max/MSP, but I have a project that I'd like to realize if it is in fact doable and hope somebody can give me some hints or a helping hand.
There's two steps to it. First off I'd like to use a webcam as a motion sensor that'll in turn work as a trigger for playback. I have a specific soundfile that I only want played every 20secs when there's noone in the room - i.e. when the webcam doesn't detect any movement. What would this entail?
Next thing is, I guess, a lot simpler: I want to set up another soundfile to be looped infinitely. So I guess a straight forward looper function?
In case it makes any difference then I'm using OSX.
Thanks a lot!
