I don't currently do any work with video, however I though it would be cool to have a way for audio in Max/MSP to react to certain things happening in a source of video. Is Jitter the only way to do this? I don't actually want to MANIPULATE or CREATE the video itself, just have previously created video influence sounds.
Any options? Jitter is great, but I'm poor and it's hard to justify the cost for how little functionality I actually need. :)
