The jitter.PAL library is a collection of Jitter modules that can be used for live video processing. The library includes modules to play videos, grab camera images,
perform video effects and mix multiple streams of video. The modules are instantiated as bpatchers and can easily be interconnected to one another. All modules can be controlled
using the onscreen interface objects or through remote messaging. As well, arguments to the bpatchers allow multiple copies of the modules to be used within the same patch and controlled
independently of one another. The jitter.PAL modules were designed and developed by David Storen.
Once downloaded, the jitter.PAL library can be placed in your Documents/Max7/Library/ folder. If you are running Max 6 or Max 6.1, place the folder inside your
/Applications/Max 6 folder or wherever you normally place your third party patches.
|GrabberBP||receives video from a web cam or video camera|
|MediaImportBP ||imports folder of videos or single video files and stores them for quick access|
|VideoControlBP ||plays video files and sets loops, allows scrubbing etc.|
|BlurBP ||creates a video delay of the incoming video signal|
|ColourAdjusterBP ||allows changes to hue, brightness, contrast and saturation of incoming video|
|DistortionBP ||uses audio signal to distort the incoming video signal|
|GlitchBP ||imposes random rectangles onto the video image |
|ZoomBP ||allows videos to be repositioned and zoomed|
|BufferControlBP ||controls the video recording system (up to 10 buffers can be controlled)|
|BufferRecordBP ||records up to 30 seconds into a connected buffer|
|BufferXBP ||the buffer storage module |
|BufferPack1BP || a module combining BufferControl BufferRecord and BufferX module|
|VMixerBP ||a module for mixing up to 4 videos and altering the size and position of the individual videos|
|ProjectorBP ||a module for displaying the video on-screen or on a projector|
This version of the jitter.PAL Library require Max/MSP 6.0 or higher.

Anyone wishing to use NoteAbilityPro in conjunction with the jitter.PAL should read through
the Max/MSP - NoteAbilityPro Tutorial created by David Litke. This tutorial
covers all the ways that Max/MSP and NoteAbilityPro can be used together in conjunction with the UBC Toolbox or the jitter.PAL library.
