FAQ: Vizzie

General Questions

How do I get Vizzie?

Vizzie is included in the Max 5.1.6 (or later) download. When you install Max, it is also installed.

What much does Vizzie cost?

Vizzie is free if you own Max/MSP/Jitter version 5 or later. You must have version 5.1.6 (or later) installed.

Can I use Vizzie if I own Max/MSP and not Jitter?

You can see the Vizzie modules but, just like Jitter objects, they won’t function. If you own Max 5 (but not Jitter), you can upgrade to Max 6 (which includes Jitter and Vizzie), visit our shop.

After I install Max 5.1.6 (or Max 6), how do I access the Vizzie modules?

There are two easy ways to access the Vizzie modules. You can open a new File Browser (File->New File Browser) and select one of the VIZZIE saved searches in the left hand column of the File Browser window. Alternately, from the unlocked Patcher window, Right-Click (Win) or Control-Click (Mac). In the contextual pop-up menu, navigate to: Paste From > VIZZIE Clippings >. Here you can further navigate to one of the VIZZIE module types and select the module you would like to use.

To learn more, watch the movies on the Vizzie Introduction page.

After I install Max 7, how do I access the Vizzie modules?

Open a new patcher window ‘File > New Patcher ‘, look for the “v” in the menu bar on the right.

How do I authorize Vizzie?

Since Vizzie already part of Max, there is no separate authorization. You just need to install Max 5.1.6 (or later) and own Jitter.

If I am using the 30-day demo and haven’t purchased Max yet, will Vizzie work?

Yes, all Max, MSP, Jitter, and Vizzie objects and modules will work. After the 30 days has expired, you will need to purchase Max/MSP/Jitter.
