how to render multiple videoplanes in a loop?

Hello,

I’m trying to render multiple videoplanes in a loop: so that X instances of videoplane would show and render the same video 3-times in a row.

I tried using uzi but it won’t work..

Why isn’t this patch working (it will render only one) ?

Thanks for help

I might have said that you need to erase from the middle outlet (uzi done) and bang from the left outlet of uzi but I don’t think that’ll work with videoplanes. You need jit.gl.multiple

Thanks man.. Is there any simple example how to use gl.multiple with videoplanes?

Thanks!

jit.gl.multiple is tricky but this patch (modified from one I found here on the forum) simplifies it massively. I think the help patch should look a little more like this:

you can draw multiple videoplanes in a loop, but you have to set @automatic 0, and then send a bang every time you change the position.
