filmmaker with questions, random edits
I’m doing some research for an upcoming project and I keep coming back to jitter as a possible solution.
I have about 25 sequences in Hi-Def QT Video and I’d like to use jitter to (randomly) edit the sequences together. I’ve been reading the jitter object reference and scanning the tutorials but nothing has really suggested I can accomplish what I’m after.
Is it possible for a randomly selected clip to begin playing immediately after the previous clip plays its last frame without a "bang" from some user input? The idea would be to create a seamless cut between the clips so as not to disrupt the flow of the film.
Is there an jitter object floating around that I may have overlooked? Thanks for your help. K

you can look at umenu for storing a bunch of clips indexed by a
number, random for a random number, and the loopreport attribute and
loopnotify message, or getframecount and framereport attribute of
jit.qt.movie for finding the last frame without user input
Thanks! keywords helped immensely. Found a relevant tutorial…
This has been helpful to me as well, but I can’t seem to get umenu to work with jt.qt.movie or jt.window. anyhelp?
Post a patch, even if it’s not working, with comments describing
exactly what you’re trying to accomplish and you will get a much
