jit.pworld Reference

Display a Jitter GL context

jit.pworld

Description

Use jit.pworld to draw pixels or graphics within a patcher - it displays jit.matrix data as well as OpenGL 3D graphics.

Discussion

This object functions the same as a jit.pwindow and jit.gl.render combination. This allows you to display HD video using only a video object and jit.pworld, which reduces patching complexity. An internal jit.gl.videoplane object is used to display texture/matrix input without a matrix readback, which increases efficiency. It instantiates as enabled at 30fps, with a black "erase" color.

Arguments

None.

Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.

presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.

rect [4 floats]
