Project a portion of a movie file

Oct 12 2009 | 12:48 am

Hello everybody!

My idea is to make a patch that takes a movie and
projects the change of a specific portion of that movie
in a new matrix.
A simple example here:

I have the following patch:

— Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. —

Verbally: I am grabing a 1 X 240 portion of the incoming movie,
and I project it on a new matrix. That last matrix is not cleared, but instead it is left to refresh its contents.

Now it looks like a scanline is updating the content in 1 X 240 pixel portions, reminds me of a photocopy machine. Definately
not what I want.

What I really want, is a way to make it appear as if it is moving in a continuous way, not like it
is refreshing (the "scan line" ).

I like to think of this last matrix as some form of circular buffer. Can this be done? Any suggestions on ways to do it?

Appreciate your help!

All that was needed was to use a setup similar to the jit.matrix-scroll.maxpat example, and to figure out how to make it move
horizontally in
sync to the scanning line!
