Introduction to Live-Video Using Jitter with Sabina Covarrubias (Mexico)
Entry Requirements: Participants aged 18+
Learn to create audio-reactive live video in this two day workshop brought to you by Cryptic and led by Mexican composer and multi-media artist Sabina Covarrubias.
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.
Date: Thursday 28 & Friday 29 March 2019.
Time: 10:00 – 18:00 each day with a one hour lunch break (participants must buy or bring their own lunch).
Location: University of Glasgow Audio Lab, 14 University Gardens, Glasgow, G12 8QH (please note the Audio Lab is accessed by stairs and is not wheelchair accessible).
Price: £50 (10% discount for students).
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!

Thursday 28 March
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.
Friday 29th March
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.
