I have a patch where I want the user to be able to save screenshots (of a GL window, using jit.desktop --> jit.matrix) at any time, and the shots will be saved automatically with an incremental name like "image_5.png" etc. No problems with the matrix, commands, or the syntax, but when I do it, I can't find where the files are saved. I haven't tried this with a stand-alone version, just with the regular Max app. I seem to remember they got put somewhere in the Cycling folder, but I can't find them there either... When I force a dialog box they save fine.
So really all I want is to be able to easily tell Max that "whatever file is saved, without any specified path, goes into this folder", i.e., the current patch folder, ideally without having the user need to select it beforehand. Looked as the conformpath etc. objects, and the ;max commands, but am not sure how to make it all work. Probably missed something.
Thanks a bunch, I know it's probably simple. It would be very handy for other stuff as well, like audio snippets etc. Stuff you don't really need to go looking for with a dialog box, but don't want to keep all in RAM all the time either, so you could load and re-load them from a custom browser within Max (like dropdowns, a thumbnail palette, etc).
