Positioning quicktime movies

April 6, 2011 | 1:00 am

I want to positioning quicktime movies.
I want that movies enter by the right from out of field, and this with any distorsion…and exit from right without any distorsion too.

I tried to positioning with a matrix connected under a jit.qt.movie… but i am not sure it is the goog way… the movement (left to right) is not fluid and there is a little bit distorsion when the movie going to or from out fo field.

May be there is a special object to do that ?

try a jit.qt.movie -> [jit.gl.videoplane @transform_reset 1 @scale 1.33 1 1] and use a position message to jit.gl.videoplane.

Hoooooo I found the solution…when i used a pak object to make the 4 numbers list needed for positionning, each new entry send to the matrix a list. It was too much for the matrix. So i replace pak for pack with 5 numbers list, except that the first number is just a BANG from a qmetro (also use on a jit.qt.movie linked on the same matrix.) So the message is now NOT dstdimstart $1 $2 etc, but dstdimstart $2 $3 etc….. and $1 is just ignore.
