And Max provides an SDK where many people have written externals for Max.
Max provides very good GLSL shader support.
And Gen! Write your own effects and processors that run as fast as C code (because they are). jit.gen, jit.pix, and jit.gl.pix.
Thanks for the reply. I am very excited about these options, and have already started to learn GLSL because of its support.
However, I already own a number of FFGL effects and was hoping to be able to use these items within jitter.
I am still working thru the jitter recipes.. so maybe after sometime I will not find the need for ffgl anymore.
