Andro converted Shadertoy tutorials to Max and shared the patches.
One of the steps involved in creating your own Packages in Max involves creating your own reference documentation for the people who’ll be using your package - reference materials that take advantage of Max’s discoverability features.
The jit.gl.pix object has become a go-to object for my visual work. I’d like to present a pathway for you to develop your own skills with the object and with the Gen environment - skimming along, sketching concepts (from beginner to advanced), and pointing you to useful but sometimes hard-to-find learning resources.
The second tutorial in our series on authoring your very own Packages for Max looks at some of the details, subtleties, and dynamics of a polished package ready to share with the world.
Using the Package Manager I can easily extend Max with the incredible work done by others with a single click. I use Packages every day for organizing work on my computer, regardless of whether it will be shared or not. In this first of a series of articles, I will share some best practices and insights for authoring your own packages.
My favorite object is jit.gl.mesh. I wouldn’t be exaggerating to say it finds its way into every patcher I write, and has become an essential part of how I think in Jitter.
The final installment of our Advanced Max series on the Fast Fourier Transform takes the tools we’ve created in this series and use them to build an FFT-based pitch tracker.
I custom automate fades, making sure each automation point is set to the right dB level. Discovering the MSP curve~ object was a real epiphany for me - I could easily construct a patch that performed timed fades that weren’t linear any longer
I’ve always been a fan of unfocused photographs, foggy mountain valleys and smeared lipstick, which means that I’m also a fan of frame-based video artwork and pixel/frame effects. I’d like to introduce you to jit.slide, which does a pixel-by-pixel slewing of video frames and basically slows down whatever is going fast - slow down and take a look!
