multitouch finger data in standalone application (windows 10)


    Dec 20 2018 | 3:36 pm
    Hello list,
    I am wondering, if it is possible to get the multitouch finger data from an standard touchscreen connected to a windows 10 pc. Touchscreen works. I can play a multislider with it. But i want to control grafic content of an opengl window.
    The only thing i found out was to use miraweb. But there it is not possible to draw opengl content.
    I tryed the hi object. There the multi touch device is not listed ...
    For me it would be also ok to have an external application which sends the finger data to max. A miraweb window behind a opengl window would be to messy iguess ;-)
    Does somebody found out how this can work ?
    best, mike

      I guess it should be possible to have it directly in Max as, starting from Max8, the software is compatible with multitouch and multislider itself can detect several touches. I hope there will be an example of multitouch object in the next SDK.

      Yes, I guess it should be possible. But I could not find an object which gives me the finger x/y data or gesture data ...

      Currently the best solution is to use Miraweb but there.s a bit of latency.

      Hi Roald,
      Thank you very much for your estimation. I do not have much experience with miraweb. But from my point of view it seems not possible to display the content of an opengl window inside a miraweb frame ....
      My goal is to control grafical content of an opengl window for example with a pinch zoom gesture.
      I found out, that jit.phys.picker can multitouch picking, but as far as i guess its only possible to detect if a named object is clicked or not.
      Perhaps someone has a hint which other software i could use on windows to detect the finger data and send it (via OSC) to max ....
      best, mike

      You might have a look at Open Stage Control. The developer pays attention to remarks/requests.
