Scrubbing with this video player

April 6, 2013 | 10:23 pm

I would like to scrub my video with the audio (eventually using arduino and an external source but that is besides the point). The PLAYR scrubs alright, though with a bit too much latency, however I cannot get the sound to play with it as it seems to mute it. With the player I currently have might I be able to simply scrub back and forth through the video, or alternately is there a way I can make the PLAYR unmuted. I also couldn’t find or figure out how exactly to use the actual SCRUBBR.

Video is muted in the PLAYR module on purpose. You can, of course, open the bpatcher and edit its contents.

The SCRUBBR produces a pair of outputs in the range 0. – 1.0 (like ALL Vizzie generator modules) you’d use to control other things). You connect it up and scrub away on the xy pad.

A little time with the Jitter tutorials would probably be useful for you – in particular, the bits that concern using messages to the jit.qt.movie object to collect information you can use for scrubbing purposes. This snippet of my old Max workshop code does that.

Any chance this would be related related to not being able to scrub through an Adobe Premier CS6 timeline and have the sound output through Soundflower?  Playing the sound from the object browser in Adobe Premier works great – which makes me scratch my head.

Trying to use Soundflower for editing Adobe Premier projects remotely.

Adobe Premier CS6
Mac OS X 10.7.5
Soundflower 1.6.6  (started with 1.5.2)

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Adam

Having played with this some more, I have some additional info (Posted on the Adobe forums too):

I’m trying to use sceensharing apps to allow me to edit in Adobe Pr CS6 yet despite a variety of attempts and many many hours of fiddling I haven’t gotten any audio to output when scrubbing.  I’ve tried a variety of Screen Sharing apps – my preferred one being SplashTop.  They all seem to do something along the lines of installing a virtual audio device like Soundflower.  This works great for sound output pretty much everwhere except when scrubbing within Adobe Premiere.  For example even playing files from the media browser in Premiere works, so its specifically isolated to playback of a timeline.

 

System info:

  • Mac OS X 10.7.5
  • MacPro Mid 2010 built in Audio and Video hardware
  • Adobe Premiere 6.0.2
  • Soundflower v 1.6.6  (tried other revisions without any difference)

 

 

Here’s what I’ve tried:

  • Set the Audio Hardware Preference to -> Default Device:  Soundflower (2ch), buffersize 2048 (and then matched the buffer in the Soundflower settings) == Playback works great when playing the media files, just not when scrubbing
  • Played with the settings in the Playback Prefefences switching from Adobe Desktop Audio to Adobe DV = no difference  (don’t have any other plugins)
  • Trying a variety of settings in the Apple Audio Midi Settings without any difference
  • Opened up Quicktime Pro Audio Recording with the Soundflower Audio as the input to see if there is any audio levels being detected = nothing detected when scrubbing

 

 

I’m not totally familar with all the settings within Pr, so perhaps there is something I’m missing?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!
