Multiple independend moving textlines

    Oct 23 2012 | 7:54 am
    Hello, i am working on a jitter patch (MAX 5, still) with many sentences that should move independently . I looked at the help file but did not find a way to generate more than one textblocks at the same time.
    Is the right way to draw them in different windows and mix them together afterwards? regards, Joa

      Unfortunately the and objects can only draw one block of text at a time.
      The solution to your problem lies in either using poly (have a look: Max5/examples/jitter-examples/video/quicktime/PolyMovie) Or you could use one and draw it several times with different settings (eg. text, position) before banging the Two of X possible solutions.
      If you want to use different fonts for the textblocks I'd suggest a for every font used, as rapid font-switching costs you fps.
