Seamless Live Performance Video Switching via Midi/Keyboard

November 4, 2013 | 4:23 pm

I’m trying to create a patcher that will enable me to switch preloaded video clips either via midi or keyboard buttons in a live performance setting. I also want to be able to manipulate video effects live. Now, I have a patcher with the FX and I have built some very clunky switchers. What I’m really needing to figure out is how to seamlessly switch between movie files, very much like in Max tutorial #12 except I need to be able to switch the input files before they reach either jit.qt.movie or jit.window??? I have explored a bunch of different avenues but haven’t come up with anything that works well. I do not want to use imovie. Thanks for any help that you can provide!
