jit.qt.movie edit commands – how to know when operation is done?

May 24, 2007 | 3:30 pm

Hi all,

I am looking into the edit commands of jit.qt.movie.

Is there a way to detect whether an edit operation is ready, similar to the "read blah.mov 1" after a read operation?

Cheers,
Mattijs

AFAIK, they are synchronous in the low priority queue, so they will
be done before you another event can be processed: i.e. "t b editop"
bangs after editop is done provided that the event is generated from
the low priority queue.

This is correct, and why the batch processors in the examples/jitter-
examples/demos folder work at all.

Ok, I briefly had the idea that the edit operations weren’t synchronous, thanks for confirming they are. It was probably a mistake in my patch.
