Multiple synced video output on two displays on single mac and extracted audio

November 22, 2013 | 8:48 am

Hello Everybody,

need quick help! I have to build a patch until monday with the following behavior:

- playing two different quicktime movies on one single mac at the same time. maybe the videos has different resolutions. The videos must be played synchronized with one start button.

- the size of each video should be alterable while keeping the aspect ratio native. Apart from this the position and size of the video windows should be storable. Maybe in a preset or something.

- one video on mac display and the other on a second in full screen (e.g. Beamer)

- each video has its own sound so the patch needs to get 4 Outputs (2x Stereo) to rout them to a mixing console.

- timeline with time left

I got this job today but I’m very busy working every day on a festival and unfortunately don’t have enough time to run through the tutorials. I’m afraid of can’t finish the patch in time. I never had worked with jitter. The artist needs this patch by monday evening.

Can anybody guide me or could tell me what objects I should looking for?

Thanks a lot!

Very possible, pretty simple just go through the tuts and the forums and you’ve got it done in a few hours. Thus, plenty of time, post an example patch of your attempts and people will find it much easier to help you.
