multi-screen .mov player

Hi,

I’m new to Jitter. I am trying to create a multi-screen installation project that will show and loop six .mov files simultaneously. Using the jit.qt.movie and the jit.window patch only seems to bring up one window, even when I add more of the same objects (I was hoping that the simple .mov player that is discussed in the tutorial could be set up six times and play six .mov files).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

This does three designed for 3 separate screens, it’s possible to repeat the code. Mostly from the optimization patches courtesy of Vade. Hope this helps.

If you are trying to do 6 screens in one window, look into the jit.scissors and jit.glue objects.

Thanks a lot!

I made six screens from this patch, and it does exactly what I need it to do!

you would most likely need something like the matrox triplehead2go which fools your mac into thinking it has a superwide (3000×1000 for instance) display..but the piece of hardware splits that into 3 distinct screens/DVI outputs..you would just fullscreen on that and then arrange things

alternately, you could use things like jit.displays and organize your windows that way
