28th and 29th March 2019,  Jitter workshop at the University of Glasgow. The workshop: Introduction to the Creation of Visuals in Real Time using Jitter lasted 8 hours per day. The students learned to use the Jitter tool from 0 to create their own visual contents. Among the audience of this workshop were art students from Glasgow University, a lecturer from the same institution and also engineers.  Workshop Produced by Cryptic-Glasgow Producers and the University of Glasgow. 

Workshop title:
Introduction to Live-Video Using Jitter, 2-days intensive Workshop 

Learn to create audio-reactive live video in this two-day workshop. This workshop is intensive and fun with a lot of practice. 

This workshop is an introduction to the world of live-video in the MAX environment. The course is designed for musicians and sound-artists who want to add interesting visuals and virtual environments to their music, multi-media artists interested in moving their work into animation or interactivity, VJ’s wanting to create their own videos, or anyone curious about how live video-synthesis is made.

This live-video workshop includes video file modifications, 3D rendering, and animation in real time. Over two days, you will develop the essential skills to allow you to successfully learn and use Jitter.

Time: Seven hours each day. Usually: 10:00 – 18:00 each day with a one hour lunch break (participants must buy or bring their own lunch).

 

Participant profile: Participants will ideally be familiar with Max MSP software or Pure Data and/or audio-software or object-orientated programming.

If you are new to both but enthusiastic and a fast learner this workshop is also for you!

 

Equipment: Participants are required to bring their own computer with the latest version of Max7 or Max8 installed (Mac or Windows). The preferred computer specifications are:

  • Ram 8G or higher (you can work with 4G, however you risk the programe running slowly);

  • Processor 2.3 GHz or higher, Intel Core i7;

  • GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB or higher.

Host equipment: Classroom equipped with projector, screen for projection, blackboard, stereo sound system, internet connection,  place for a maximum of 40 students.  

 

Programe outline: This schedule might vary depending on the students requirements and previous Max-MSP experience. 

Day 1. 

10.00 – 13.00: The day will start by learning about settings, patch cords and playback of a video sequence. Participants will explore colour representation, video capture and matrix resizing operations and many other features. At the end of the morning session, participants will be able to modify a movie sequence in realtime.

14.00 – 18.00: In the afternoon jit.catch, jit.graph, jit.poke and jit.peek will be introduced, resulting in participants modifying a movie file through audio data.

Day 2

10.00 – 13.00: The second day will begin with an introduction to Open GL in Jitter. This will include rendering, camera, shapes, textures and animation. By the end of the morning session you will be able to modify a 3D shape using audio.

14.00 – 18.00: In the afternoon, you will learn primitive drawing methods and will make a composition using jit.gl.mesh. Sabina will then share tips on ‘learning to learn’, becoming self-taught and Jitter resources.

Please note you must attend both days of the workshop and places are only secured when a full payment has been made. If you need to cancel your booking, we will endeavour to provide a refund if your place on the workshop can be filled.
