smooth video routing


    Dec 04 2010 | 6:36 am
    Hello.
    I connected multiple video inputs into one router to change videos from outer signals.
    But it switches input just like on-off switch.
    Can I make it look smoothly changing? easy and simple way?
    Thanks

      By "smoothly changing", you mean, perhaps, "crossfading" (non-instantaneously)? Check out jit.xfade (and Jitter Tutorial 8).

      Hi,
      I have some abstractions that might help: http://www.hellbender.org/ikehmope.php
      Look at ike.xfade_auto, ike.xfade_auto_dualstate, ike.toggle_xfade and ike.mix_xfade. I haven't touched these in a few years, but they should work fine with current versions of Max/Jitter.

      links at the page you pointed are not working.

      I connected more than 3 different input to router, only one video comes out from message command 'patch'.
      the router output doesn't xfade with anyother matrix.
      how can I make self video easing itself? delay? alphablend?
      gl command would be better.

      try jit.slide perhaps? does a kind of blurring over a specified duration. not really an xfade, but can accomplish similar results with only one stream.
