Jit.qt.record question

Nov 24 2009 | 10:22 pm


I think this might be a (fairly) basic question:

I’m creating a patch with two side by side videos: one based on the jit.qt.grab object/iSight and another video with pre-recorded content. They play simultaneously. What I want is to be able to grab clips (photos, essentially) of the (iSight cam) footage and stack these over the other video.

How can I tell max to grab one second clips of the isight footage and have these appear in the patch rather than writing to desktop, etc?

So, you don’t want to record to disc, right, but rather use the second of video as a video buffer? Look into [jit.matrixset]. And maybe you’d get more useful answers on the Jitter forum.

right – I want to use the second of video as a buffer. I’ll check the jitter forums specifically – thanks!
