Knowing which frame you are at in jit.qt.movie

Hello

I know that as I’m using QT I’m supposed to be understanding that .mov files run using differences between one timepoint and the next, but I’ve got a composite movie made up of variable length clips and i can get the movie to start playing from specific frames through the use of the ‘frame’ message; this way I can specify which clip to play by jumping forward to the chosen clip. But I want to stop playing when I reach the end of the clip (a specified number of frames later)

Is there any way of knowing (say) I’ve got to frame 300 having started by specifying frame 250 and played 50 frames?
Thanks

To add, it doesn’t feel right hooking up something which uses a metro to constantly send frame messages to the jit.qt.movie object. unless someone tells me performance will be ok doing this and it’s The Right Way.
