This sounds silly. I would like the MAX/Jitter patch directly select my desired camera when I click on "open". It is annoying every time, I have to click on "vdevide $1" and "getdevlist" and then select the "sony HD eye for PS3" from the drop down menu. Is there a simple way to directly select the camera? I tried to set the quicktime preference and send "vdevide sony HD eye for PS3" message directly but neither method works and it goes to the default camera (which is my i-sight build-in camera in my computer)
Once you’ve loaded the umenu with your devices it gets saved with the patch. I normally just loadbang the menu with whatever number device I want. Of course, if your devices change or you move the patch to another machine this approach might not work.
