goal It is still hard these days to control video like you can control sound. We built a small program which can do the following with captured DV video: loop (forward/backward), stretch, pitch, audio sync with manual (use spacebar) BPM counter, etc.
project description The program has been written and compiled in IRCAM's MAX for Apple Macintosh computers. Max is an easy program to use with sound and video. As you can see in the patch for the controls, the only thing you have to do is to draw line between de different objects. The buttons used are just standard images from the Webdings font.
