"Jitter is a set of 135 brilliant new video, matrix, and 3D graphics objects for the Max graphical programming environment. The Jitter objects extend the functionality of Max4/MSP2 with flexible means to generate and manipulate matrix data -- any data that can be expressed in rows and columns, such as video and still images, 3D geometry, as well as text, spreadsheet data, particle systems, voxels, or audio. Jitter is useful to anyone interested in real-time video processing, custom effects, 2D/3D graphics, audio/visual interaction, data visualization, and analysis.
Since Jitter is built upon the Max MSP
programming environment, the limitations inherent in fixed purpose applications is eliminated. You are able to build the programs you want to use, rather than being forced to work around somone else's idea of how things should be done. This power is not to be underestimated, so please use it wisely."www.cycling74.com/products/jitter.html
