random ->route -> jit.q issue


I’m new at Max 5, and I’m trying to just have jit.qt.movie switch between three different movie files based on a random and a route. The below jpg is what I have, and it routes the number through the first set of switches, but doesn’t appear to be reading the movies, certainly not playing them. The movies are on my desktop, which is in my search path. I don’t SEE anything wrong with this, but plainly something is?

If the pic is your whole patch you are missing a metro to run your jit.qt.movie… no metro, no action…

also, it’s always a good idea to post the patch that’s not working, or the part that is not working. always copy compressed though, then just paste into the browser.

Here is a little patch with route and qt.movie that should get you started.

Yeah, I figured it was something like that. Thanks for the help!
