04 Feb Video Playback System In Progress
This past week I started exploring Max/Jitter and building a system based on an idea for a performance. The performance I have in mind involves a video censoring system in which the performer can select, manipulate and swap out any of the videos in the matrix.
Below are two rudimentary versions of the system.
Version 1 uses a grid of jit windows, option to randomly change window size and option to pixelate selected videos.
Version 2 includes a 4×3 video matrix in one jit window and an option to remap the RGBA values of the videos to turn them red.
I tried adding sound to the systems, attempting to trigger a certain sound to play whenever I pixelate a video or turn it red. But I couldn’t figure out how to do that. For my next steps, I’ll play with combining these two systems, designing an interface that makes more sense for the performance and adding sound.
