startup max/jitter and setup settings automatically

    Nov 13 2009 | 3:11 pm
    I have an installation work where I normally start up the computer and the camera and setup everything. This installation will be shown abroad and I will not be present there. Is there a way to startup Max automatically and setup the settings as well without somebody having to go there everyday?

      i would think you would want to walk someone through the startup procedure on a new computer at least once (especially the camera connections).
      you could probably come up with an automated way of doing it, but you would want to test on neutral computers with the camera connected. once it recognizes the camera the first time, there shouldn't be a problem with an automated startup procedure.
      i would stretch it out as long as possible with loadbang and several stages of delays.
      a standalone application might be the best solution, but again, you will want to test on neutral computers of the same OS as the show's computer.
