      And thanks for the excellent tutorial. For some reason Spectral Filter's Morph CV doesn't react to the sinal from Videoconverter.

      My first thought would be that perhaps you're running a video that has very little in the way of change in it through the converter - remember that you're taking a grayscale average of ALL the pixels and outputting that average. The big giveaway would be to keep a close eye on the FADR (if you're patching along with the video). If you see very little in the way of movement by the fader, then that's probably the offending beast. Is that the case?

      Thanks, but the FADR is moving alright and I'm running the same video as in the tutorial.
      I forgot to mention that I'm using Max for Live in patcher mode.

      Ok, now it's magically working. Sorry for the trouble.

      I can't find the Cloud Oscillator module, it doesn't show up in my version of Max 7. Am I doing something wrong?
