Setting Jitter preferences

The Jitter category of the Max Preferences window lets you set the video engine that Jitter uses.

Video engine preferences

By default, Jitter on Macintosh systems uses the Objective-C-based AV Foundation (AVF)interface for managing the recording and playback of video. Previous versions of Max on the Macintosh used Apple QuickTime (QT) for video and audio playback.

On Macintosh systems, you can choose to use either the AVF or QT engines.

Note: At the present time, Jitter still uses QuickTime on Windows systems.

Choosing a video engine (Macintosh only)

  • Click the menu in the Values column for the Video Engine preference in the Preferences window and choose the AV Foundation (avf) or QuickTime (qt) engines.
