Bird Motion

Posted by on Jan 23, 2010 in DIY, music, software, video

I threw together a little motion detecting modulation plugin for max4live.  You can get it here.  Novelty drinking bird not included.

    Hi Bob.

    Wicked page you got here, lovely plugins and awesome music !

    I would love to incorporate your Bird-motion plugin into my livesets, but I can’t make it acces any parameters? It accesses my camera fine, I’m on a MacBook Pro (2008) with Live 8.2.2 and newest MaxMSP. I’ve tried both putting it in front of the unit I want to change and behind it – but no worky worky.

    Hope you can help me out :)

    Cheers !

      couple of things to try-
      make sure you load motion-mod after you load the plugins you want to modify.
      If they’re still not in the drop down try clicking the little refresh button.
      If neither of those work then it’s possible the latest changes to max and ableton might have broken the plugin. I’ll look into it this week when i get a chance.

      Thanks for getting in touch!
