I'm a total beginner on jitter, so I'll try to be as clear as possible.
I want to map the joystick keys to trigger some premade vizzie objects. Let's say I just want to control the crossfade between two videos with the left trigger of the controller. How can I do this?
Doing this is similar to any basic Max patching question. You need to know three things (one of which you already know, if you're at all familiar with Vizzie).
1. What range of values doe the XFADR module in Vizzie expect to work with. Answer: floating point values in the range of 0. - 1.0.
2. What range of values does the joystick controller put out? You can check that out by either looking at the patch itself, or by sticking a floating point number box on the output.
3. What Max object or technique can I use to convert the output range of values from the video controller part of my patch to the 0. - 1.0 range that all Vizzie modules expect for data (Hint: the scale object)?
