Forums > Jitter objects communication with syphon

June 9, 2013 | 11:01 am

hi! i ‘m a begginer in max so i need some help in my project.
First of all i am trying to send video data to syphon using gl objects and especially the "" object. I have read some other topics about other gl objects communication with syphon and the only thing that i found out is every guy suggest to use some objects such us "" to communicate with syphon.

If there is anyone could give me a peace of advise, i will appreciate it.

Hey! @capture1, captures every gl object you connect to the center port. Gl.node then outputs everything connected as a texture, from the left port. You can send that texture to a slab, or straight to Syphon.

OK! i opened the patch but the is missing, perhaps i don’t have it.
I use max 5, i was wondering if that object is contained only in max 6.
let me know…

ok guys i searched about some gl objects tha are missing from my max 5 library and my problem is all the objects i want is for max 6.
If anybody could help to make an alternative way to manage the gl.slab communication with syphon with max 5, it would be great.
thanks a lot…!

I have not used Max5, but i think you can use if you want to capture gl-objects. With a videostream it’s even easier, because you can just stream that baby straight into Syphon, or through a slab.

Here’s a picture of the patches, just in case somethings not working in Max5.

In Max5 you can use the ‘to_texture’ message to to render the whole scene to a texture. These things are a lot easier with in Max6.

@Anton: please keep in mind that Syphon works with openGL textures. It can only receive the output of an object if that output is a texture. A matrix sent into is converted to a texture. Not sure if you can send a matrix straight into the syphon object.
