Ableton Live 6 just released with support for triggering quicktime video samples. You can even send the video to a second monitor in fullscreen mode.
This leads me to the question: Is there any way to route this video instead to a jitter matrix? thus being able to process the video being triggered in Ableton?
to me that would be oh so cool for my VJ rig as I incorporate audio samping in my performance.
It would seem to me that there would be a way similar to soundflower where you "trick" the computer in to thinking it's outputting to a video card, then some sort of quicktime grab could import it in to a jitter matrix?
But maybe I'm missing something fundamental here? Is it too much to ask of a computer?
Maybe someone's done this already?
