working with JitterObjects in mxj that don't output jitter matrices

    Oct 03 2007 | 10:15 am
    hi, i'm trying to write a class for mxj that incorporates a JitterObject.
    from the examples this seems to be straight forward for objects that process and output jitter matrices, like in the "javajitterfirsttest.pat" example, where jit.sobel and jit.brcosa are used with the "matrixcalc" message:
    mybrcosa.matrixcalc(inname,mymatrix2); etc.
    but what about using a jitter object, which doesn't output a jitter matrix?
    i'd like to find the mean value of a 2d 1 plane matrix using jit.3m e.g.
    JitterObject my3m = new JitterObject("jit.3m"); my3m.matrixcalc(myInputMatrix, ???);
    thanks for any pointers. volker.

      same question but with jit.findbounds findbounds has two outlets which output list two integer lists how do i grab the output ? myfindbounds.matrixcalc(mat, ???);

      in java: my3m = new JitterObject("jit.3m"); ... my3m.matrixcalc(inmat, null); outlet(1,"mean", my3m.getAttr("mean"));
      but with jit.findbounds it doesent work ;-( WHY NOT !!! because the jit.findbounds outlet name "min bound" has got a blank ? i tried als permutations "min bounds", "min_bounds", "minbounds"... and allways get an java.lang.NullPointerException: args argument cannot be null error message
      any ideas ?
