Simple Controllable movie timeline bar

Hi Guys

Seeing as you guys are more help than my lecturer I thought I’d come here first. I’m sure its pretty easy to do but its messing with me and I’m in a bit of a rush. Basically I want a timeline bar which can be used to jump to different parts of the movie easily.

Any help would be great. Thanks guys!

The readymade object is called playbar. Strip the word “pos” off of its output with a route object, multiply the position number by the duration of the movie, prepend the word “time”, and send that time value to jit.qt.movie.

Is there any way of getting it to output a number of the current frame it is on? I want to use it to control start and stop points of a loop. so when it gets to a part that the user wants to loop, they click a button and it will set a start point then they can click another button and it will set the stop point and loop the selected area?

Read Jitter tutorial 4. That information is discussed in length.
