Loading Videos Quickly (choosing from many)

Ok so I’ve got this example patch but it doesn’t work.

Rather than have to click ‘read’ and then get a pop up finder menu, I want to have my video clips in a menu like the one included in this patch that shows me all the clips available so I can select one on the fly, without a pop up finder window opening.

This is for the purpose of live performance

Any ideas for having multiple/many clips a click away from playing inside of my jitter patch without having to open another window?

any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Luis

Thanks for your help, however still upon clicking on the menu and selecting a video it makes the finder window pop open to then select the video a second time. kind of double handling now… selecting it in the menu and then again on the finder window.

I would like to have like a self read message but so they’re all contained in a drop down message, instead of 3 messages like in this patch

not sure if this is possible and/or I’m making myself clear?

that’s awesome, thanks so much.

I’m also thinking up another way to execute this so as to be able to select the ‘next’ video after the one playing using a single midi note on message

will have a crack and getting it myself and might post back here should I strike problems. Thanks for your help Luis

cheers,

Tom.

You can easily do that whit the coll object and the counter object.

The [umenu] object accepts the "next" and "prev" message now so this would be quite easy to do if you use [sel] or [if] to compare your midi input with the desired trigger value.
