Topic: How: Live video buffer + looping

I just joined this forum, because I am kind of stuck. For a project, here is what I want to do. I want for a person to walk into a room, and see themselves on a screen (via a single video input). Then, based/triggered on their movement, I want the live video to jump back to a few seconds back, and loop, distort etc. Ideally, I would like to have a live video buffer, with different effects attached, so that the output video can switch from a looping video, to a slow-mo video etc. and switch back and forth. I am familiar with the motiontrigger and I understand how to use it to trigger certain effects, but what I don’t know is how to accomplish having a *live* video buffer and additionally loop it.

Dale Phurrough. Kinect 1 and Kinect 2 now supported in Max with dp.kinect and dp.kinect2 objects - Cycling '74 Forums. ReWire Essentials 1: From Max/MSP to Your Host - Cycling 74 Makers of Max Visual Programming Software for Artists, Musicians & Performers. In our tutorial, we will show connections to two major software packages: Ableton Live and Digital Performer.

However, if you use a different application, you should check the documentation to learn more about its ReWire implementation. In most cases, the process is the same: CycliC Step Sequencer. CycliC, is a software-based step sequencer,developed in collaboration with Olivier Gillet of Mutable Instruments.

CycliC Step Sequencer

It is based on a very straightforward concept: up to 6 independent “subsequences” traverse through a 32 step note array. Each of these subsequences can send MIDI information to a unique MIDI device and/or channel. Active notes within the note array can be selected at random, as can the note values themselves. Notes can also be constrained to musical scales if desired (thanks to VJ Manzo’s Modal Object Library!). The sequencer can run off of an internal clock, or via MIDI clock, and its presets can be selected via MIDI program change messages. In new version 1.5 of the software, VST plugin instruments are now supported, and per-step velocity and gate parameters are added, as well as two continuous controller (CC) messages that can also be sent on a per-step basis. The bottom line is that in many ways, this sequencer is quite simple, but incredibly powerful.

Dmxusbpro - DMX 512 externals for Max. Working with Hardware: DMX, Part 1 - Cycling 74 Makers of Max Visual Programming Software for Artists, Musicians & Performers. DMX, or more accurately, DMX 512, is a network protocol most commonly used for the control of stage lighting and effects.

It is easily programmed in Max, using techniques similar to those used to program MIDI. With your Max skills, you can replace and extend the functionality of dedicated DMX controller/mixer hardware boxes with patches. This is the first article of three in which we shall explore the world of programming DMX with Max. Over the course of these articles, we will present some basic DMX concepts and an introduction to some DMX hardware options that are usable with Max. The second article will feature interviews with Max programmers that have experience with DMX in professional environments.

Use MaxURL to Create a Realtime Instagram Collage

If you’ve been thinking about creating a crowd-sourced multimedia patch or a data-driven interactive work, now is a good time to give it a shot. To demonstrate one possible direction, in this tutorial we’ll look at creating a Jitter collage with Instagram photos. If you haven’t looked inside the maxurl help patch, I recommend you start there and familiarize yourself with the different tabs. There’s a lot there and lots of practical examples that will give you an idea of how to use this object in a Max patch. For this tutorial, we’ll be using the Javascript version of the object, XMLHttpRequest (should be familar to anyone doing Web development).

Since we’re using the Instagram API to run this, you will need to visit the Instagram developer site to get your own API client ID. Composite Video Input Devices for OSX. You can use the Pinnacle Dazzle RCA/Composite / USB 2.0 adaptor which gives you uncompressed NTSC/PAL over USB 2.0.

All the video glide devices are Uncompressed, USB 2.0. Here is an image of the capture devices for size. Note, the Diamond Multimedia device shows up in the driver list, but I’ve not gotten it to work.

Dehumaniser. Dehumaniser is a prototype application that transforms voice into monster sounds in real time.


It has already been used by acknowledged sound professionals in the film and video game industry. There are several presets, which create different creature sound effects that are applied to the voice. Need Help Turning Image into Sound. Max 5 Tutorials: Table of Contents.

What is a Matrix?

For example, a chess board is a matrix in which every square contains a specific item of information: a particular chess piece, or the lack of a chess piece. White has just moved a pawn from matrix location e2 to location e4. For the sake of this discussion, though, let's assume that the "information" at each location in a matrix is numeric data (numbers). Gesture Follower - ftm. From ftm What is the gesture follower ?

Gesture Follower - ftm

The gesture follower is a ensemble of Max/MSP modules to perform gesture recognition and following in real-time. It is integrated in the toolbox MnM of the library FTM (see dowload). The general idea behind it is to get parameters from the comparison between a performance and an set of prerecorded examples. The gesture follower can guess the two following questions: which gesture is it ? How to make exponential data curves?
