Jitter SDK

Dec 13 2009 | 11:24 pm


when will the Jitter SDK & its documentation updated and included in the Max5 SDK ?

the old Jitter SDK is so ugly ! i am developing under Windows (but on a macbook pro) and the examples are buggy and VC projects are obsoletes.

it’s quite disappointing…

The Jitter SDK should build fine and not have any bugs that we know of. If you are experiencing any bugs, please let us know what they are. The Visual Studio project files should upgrade fine as opened in newer versions of visual studio. Please let us know if they do not.

We are working on restoring the old Jitter Programming Guide which was lost from the website in our web page transition. This will be available soon. Jitter still requires using the older max API for the Max wrapper objects (e.g. setup/addmess rather than class_new/class_addmethod). This will change in Max 6, at which time we will revamp the Jitter SDK accordingly.

Is there anything specific you are having trouble with other than what sound to me like cosmetic problems?

– the JitterSDK version 1.6 is only available as a .dmg file, not very efficient under Windows, and the .zip version for Windows is hidden on the web site and quite old
– the maxcrt.lib reference is missing in the release configuration of the Visual projects, so they don’t compile just after conversion
– there is no template project and all Visual projects are made with static references (no use of buildin or system variables), so it is not very easy to take one as a template project
– as you said, the reference guide is also hidden on the old web site
– all examples are in the old programming style

so you’re right, mostly cosmetic problems, but an update will be appreciated :-)
when is it programmed ?

I do agree with Antoine, whereas the max/msp sdk has been simplified it feels the jitter project are difficult to use.
please update!
thank you

Well, it looks like Tim Place is working on making these things better for an SDK release in the not so distant future. Please thank him when it arrives.

Thank you for the feedback.
