running 2 videos parallell to eachother

I am a 2nd year university and I am having an extremley hard time creating a patch. Basically, I have 2 .mov files. one is live footage and the other is that same live footage with animation drawn over top. I want to be able to show the live footage, than via an electronic switch, switch between the live footage and the animated footage, however the reason i need them running at the same time is so that when the switch is pushed to cycle between the 2, they start at the same frame.

Any ideas on where i could start. Right now i’ve got 2 videos running in jitter, but i cant figure out how to string them together.

hi..
maybe sending the message [frame 0] or whatever number of frame you wish to both qt.movies when the switch is pushed?

switching between jitter matrices is as simple as plugging the two matrix connections into the two inputs of a [switch 2] object.
compositing two matrices is a different story.
please show us what you’ve come up with, and explain what is not working, but posting a copy-compressed patch.
