Hi, for a class project we have to create a program in Max. My team pretty much left me out to dry on doing it, and I have no clue how to use this software. I have a bunch of premade patch things, and 2 days to create it. Hopefully if I get some help from you guys, it won't take that long.
What I need it to do.
Play a video of rain on a loop with sound.
When my microphone hears a noise above a certain sound level, it plays a thunder sound (maybe with a lightning picture overlaid onto the rain video if thats possible)
What I would LIKE it to do in addition to the above.
Using frame differencing and this patch my teacher gave us called Quadrants, I was hoping that the more movement it registered in the top 2 sections the faster the video would play. Then if it registered a certain amount of movement in the bottom 2 sections, it would play a quick splash sound clip.
The idea is that the people in front of the webcam are interacting with each other and the program, "creating" a storm.
Any input on how to do this would be fantastic, I'm using a trial version of Max 6, an Imac with an iSight camera. If you can help and need any other information, please respond and I'll get it to you ASAP.
