Cycling '74 has released Jitter 1.0, a set of video, matrix, and 3D graphics objects for the Max graphical programming environment. Jitter, which provides modularity in graphics processing applications, includes "over 130 new objects for describing and manipulating matrix data -- any data that can be expressed in rows and columns, such as video and still images OpenGL-based 3D geometries, text, spreadsheet data, particle systems, voxels, or audio." It includes support for QuickTime, a set of OpenGL objects, DV camera control (as well as input and output via FireWire), and provides multiple monitor support. Upgrades are $400, while a bundle with Max, MSP, and Jitter is available for $850.
