Combining Multiple Matricies into one Large Grid

Mar 23 2009 | 2:40 pm


I’ve been trying to combine multiple video feeds into a large grid of different video screens using the jit.glue object. However this object only seems to be able to work with a single matrix. I cannot get it to glue multiple matricies together.

Has anyone else managed to combine multiple video feeds in this way or should I be using something else?

Hi ahill86, you might want to read tutorial 16 "Using named jitter matrices" , where you can learn how to combine several video matrices in a final one. You have to specify with srcdimstart and srcdimend where each video should start and end. You can have a look at this patch too

Hi thanks very much I’ve looked at the tutorial and it really should work however I’m having difficulty making it do so.

I’ve just copied everything from the tutorial and then renamed the bits and I don’t understand why it won’t work!

I’ve attached my patch perhaps you could have a look at it and find out what’s wrong.

As you’ll be able to see I’m going to be receiving multiple signals from different mac’s over network so I bet that will bugger it up too.

I have been studying your patch, but I really can’t figure out what the problem is.I am sure it must be something really silly but I just can see it. Somebody please enlighten us!! Smile

What about jit.glue – you’ll need to use matrices with the same dimension, in other way it’s not works…

My noise bits are different matrix types! I changed them now to both be 4 plane char and it works fine.

Thanks so much for the help guys. It remains to be seen if it will work with my networked files. Is there any way to synch the networked footage to a metro on the hub computer?

I bet that will be the next issue with this patch!

I’ll keep you posted, thanks again.
