    I have an idea just want to see if jitter is the right program for this project
    Its simple, and that's the point, iam i able to use a stencil image to overlay and filter the video output.?? say i make a image/ pattern in photo shop / illustrator can i then import that some how and overlay it on the output??
    The image is a segmented pattern. Can i also with in jitter cut the video up into segments and sequence the around the pattern/image ?
    iam just fishing about to find a program that will allow me to do this
    thank you in advance for any help
    p.s iam supper green but keen to learn!!!!!

      Jitter will certainly allow you to do this. Are you planning on doing your video mashing live, or is it just a one-off video piece? If the latter, you may find Jitter's learning curve a bit steep compared to, say, After Effects or Premiere (I only mention these packages because it sounds like you have some Adobe experience...)
      But Jitter is a sound investment in any case - if you don't pick up enough skills in time for this project, you certainly will by the time your next cool idea rolls around!
      Try downloading the Max demo and check out the Jitter examples - there's a lot to wade though, but you'll quickly see the broad range of possibilites.
