I’m trying to load a 476KB JPEG file into a picture based control object, and when I press open in the Get Info window, Max closes and no error messages appear. What in the name of goats cheese is going on?
This is the patch, it works fine with a simpler image:
I believe on windows that the pictctrl width limit is 4096, which is
perhaps what you’re experiencing. We hope for this problem to be
removed in MaxMSP 5, but for the time being it is a limitation.
Alternately, you might be able to make a pictctrl like object in JSUI
which uses multiple images, instead of pictctrl.
