I'm not new to Max but quite new to Jitter, and this current problem has me going batty.
The attached patch attempts to load a map in layer 2 and overlay a set of icons in layer 1 of jit.gl.videoplane, loading the images via a set of jit.qt.movie objects.
The trouble arises when I try to combine the icons, which are .png and contain transparency, into layer 1 of jit.gl.videoplane. As they have to be scaled to proper size using dstrect into jit.qt.movie, the transparency is only applied to the specified area; the rest of jit.pwindow remains black.
Since I will be using a good number of icons, the [jit.op +] method may not be optimal either.
Does anyone know how to ensure layer 1 remains transparent wherever the dstrect does not apply?
Many many thanks,
