Why doesn't this work? jit.noise and jit.glue

    Hello I am trying to use jit.glue to combine six matrices filled randomly with colors from jit.noise. Jit.glue will only display one matrix out of six at a time. All of the places where a matrix should be displayed are black except for the place where the most recent matrix that was sent in goes. I'm wondering why it won't just show them all and change as new ones come in. I'm sorry if my description is confusing. I find that it's hard to put into words what is going on in Max sometimes; especially if I don't know what's going wrong. Thanks very much for your help!

      It appears jit.glue does not cache the incoming matrices, so you'll have to either find another way. I recommend you use a single accumulation matrix and manipulate the @dstdim attribute for each incoming matrix.
      BTW, you don't need two qmetro's in your subpatchers... think about it.

      Thank you for your help. I'm sorry but I don't understand what an accumulation matrix is. The reason for two qmetros is that I was seeing what would happen if the random dimensions are generated at a different rate than when jit.noise gets it's bang. In the end I just synched them up. If I get this patch to work I will clean it up. Thanks again.
