setcell vs copyArrayToVectorPlanar method

Java/jitter offers two different ways to ‘fill up’ matrices: setcell and copyArrayToVectorPlanar. So far I find the second cleaner and more efficient. However, the criteria for their use might be related with the context of use. Herewith a small example of how to use setcell in order to create a random jitter matrix:

import com.cycling74.max.*;
import com.cycling74.jitter.*;
import java.util.Random;

public class SetMe extends MaxObject{
Random rrand;
JitterMatrix jl;
static final int PLANES=3;

public SetMe(){
jl=new JitterMatrix(“hehe”,PLANES,”float32″,10,10);
this.rrand=new Random();

public void bang(){

public void calculateMe(){
for(int k=0;k<PLANES;k++){
for(int i=0;i<10;i++){
for(int j=0;j<10;j++){
jl.setcell(new int[]{i,j},k,rrand.nextInt(10));

It is important to notice how copyArrayToVectorPlanar uses a single dimension loop to fill the matrix, whereas setcell requires two values to point the location of each one of the values. Maybe here is the bottleneck for this method?
