So I've not done a ton with jitter, but recently I've been doing some color/DMX stuff. Nothing dynamic/video oriented, but just randomly selecting within a certain colorspace (currently stored as about 30 coll objects).
What I have works fine, but it's a real pain in the butt to add more color swatches/palettes/spaces at the moment as it means creating new coll objects and adding accompanying routing objects.
What would be much simpler is loading an image into a matrix, and then using some kind of pointer to select a section of that image to use as the color space.
I had a look through the jitter tutorials but didn't see anything along those lines (color picker with adjustable pointer aperture).
I don't want to do anything with jitter other than spit out a list of the colors inside the pointer. The actual 'stuff' will be happening in max. It's just the lookup/storage that I want to do in jitter.
What objects should I be looking at to do this? Can you load arbitrarily sized/resolution images? Compressed images?
