loadram and multiple jit.qt.mov

September 26, 2006 | 9:08 pm

Hello All…

I am wondering if loadram essentially functions like a buffer – that is can any jit.qt.mov refer to the data once loaded into RAM?

I am working on a patch where I have several jit.qt.mov objects referring to the same movie files and would like to take advantage of the LOADRAM speed advantage
but I don’t know if I need to tell each jit.qt.mov object to loadram or what.

I could use multiple instances of poly~ (based on the poly for movies example) but I may run out of RAM if I have to load the same file in repeatedly.

thanks

I don’t know how quicktime handles this in the background, but I
would assume that every movie has its own ram buffer, and that these
are not shared between multiple instances of the same movie.
