jit.qt.record…record to arbitrary time, like matrixset…

March 15, 2007 | 7:51 pm

unless it’s undocumented, it’s not possible to record a matrix into jit.qt.record into an arbitrary frame of a movie – you can only add a frame to the end. I would love to be able to do this! This would essentially give qt.record the same ability as a jit.matrixset of 4 plane char data, but without having to pre-allocate a lot of memory , the benefits of compression, and the benefit of already having everything on the harddrive if a crash occurs.
so I guess this is a feature request, either for jit.qt.record to have a "frame" message, or for jit.matrixset to be able to use the harddrive rather than gobbling up RAM.

You could always write your data to disk as images and reorder them later.

FWIW, one can exploit the jit.qt.movie editing messages to this
extent as well–i.e. record single frame images or movie files and
then use the copy/cut/paste/insert messages to do whatever it is you
want.
