Joy Tartaglia – Meme Remix

For my project, I picked one meme video with music and then set up four different, separate video effects that can be messed around via controller. Unfortunately, I couldn’t for the life of me get a controller to work on my computer, so I set up a rudimentary control system via keyboard as a placeholder. I’ll have to update with a video with proper controller use.

The four different transform/effect options are the fractalizr, planemappr, pixl8r, and slidr. Only one can be selected at a time with the letter/shape buttons and then controlled with the d-pad. The trigger and bumper buttons scrub the video and change the volume respectively. At least, in theory, all this should work. I just need a working controller and a computer willing to accept said controller input so I can tweak the route and select numbers.

I also originally wanted to include some sound effects or alternate soundtracks, but the sound signals didn’t seem to want to work for me.

Edit: Turns out, the problem I was having solved itself at literally the last second. I didn’t have the time to make a video using the controller, though.

    This is so cute! I am always impressed by how complicated your patcher is and how well you are able to understand how well every thing works together in Max (not only for this project). There is a great variety of effects being used in this animation and it all comes together very smoothly.
    Out of curiosity, where did you find this clip of Pikachu?

    This is a great demonstration of the different visual effects that are available in MAX.

    I’m glad that someone decided to use this clip in their project – it was made to be looped, after all! You did an awesome job with making all the live audio/video edits work smoothly together. I especially like the transitions that came up occasionally (not sure if they were intentional, but they look nice!).
