jit.scissors | video mask

November 5, 2008 | 4:11 pm


I’m looking to create a mask of a live feed using multiple jit.pwindows. Scaling the jit.pwindows under jit.scissors only changes that window’s resolution. I would ultimately like to shape about 15-20 jit.pwindows and have the live feed show up correctly in those jit.pwindows.
^a sketch of what I’m talking about

Any ideas?

You should take a look at Andrew Benson’s Jitter Recipe #37 (in Recipe Book 3). It’s called Shatter – might be what you’re after.

I want the shattered things on the right to be a mask to the live feed on the left.

Ok, there are many ways to achieve what you want. Here’s one easy way that doesn’t involve GL. Please take a look at it, and check out Jitter Tutorial 20: Using the Alpha Channel. After that, if you still have specific questions, post your patch-in-progress. But do some work first. Good luck.

I meant Jitter Tutorial 29 (Max5).
