[LIPP week 2] First experiments with Jitter in Max


HW: Start building a video playback system

  • Using the tools learned in class today build your own video playback system that you can use with the footage you shot for last week’s assignment. You will each get unique outputs based on what order you put things in the video effect chain so experiment. Start to think about modularity of these different effects and what produces the most dynamic imagery with the footage you shot.
  • Write a blog post showing off what you made either with screenshots or screen recordings. Explain what worked and what you discovered. Also explain what was frustrating or confusing. Be prepared to show your patch in class and talk us through it. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do a performance with it yet.

I started from the patcher we made in class, and added the contrast / saturation / brightness modifier to play around with the image. After that, I added a noise matrix that I wanted to be able to crossfade, but I didn’t figure out how to do that. I changed my patcher so much that the final version makes it very difficult to add the noise to a plane on the fly, so I’ll probably change that before class. Also, I was trying to figure out how to change the dimensions of the matrices using $1 for a long time, and I couldn’t figure it out.

In the positive side, I really explored the possibilities of jit.brcosa, and created subpatchers to contain the mess that was happening on my screen with it. I made three control possibilities for each attribute: random, int and setting back to 1. I also played around with the random frames, and with switching from one video input to noise. Again, I was switching with noise because I was playing around with merging possibilities, but I will eventually just duplicate the whole patcher to switch between two videos.


I figured I am really not that interested in working with pre-recorded video, so I am still not sure what I want to do, but I definitely want to work either with webcam input or drawing — if I can get there in the time we have for the first performance.
