simultaneously 30 small videos and mc.usb

Hi

I was wondering if I could get some advices on how to use the
OS X 4.8 and Jitter in a more efficient way.

I have a silhouette with 30 or smaller videos inside of it that are playing and reacting at the same time.

Do you think that I am going to be able to control simultaneously 30 small videos? I do not care about the resolution nor size I just want to see them playing and reacting to my sensors.

I am starting to create this patch so I would like to know if this is not doable by means of traditional video patches and I will need to use open Gl or any other jitter way to handle information please let me know. My immediate knowledge takes me to use direct QuickTime video but certainly I do not want to crush my computer and at the end of the day I want the videos to run smoothly.

Any help on this is very much appreciated. If there are examples and tutorials I would love to see those and I apologize for not knowing.

Are there people using the make controller with mc.usb (osc by USB) any experience that you would like to share with is very much appreciated.

Thank you

D

It shouldn’t be much work to make a test patch that plays 30 movies with a random rate..

Hi there,

I’ve been using the make controller as a sort of video mixer (or
trying to, im new to the controller board and jitter) but with
udpsend and udprecieve and so far it seems too be working great for
me, how are you planning to use it and whats the advantage of mc.usb?
I downloaded it but so far I’ve been sticking with the network option
as it means it can be remote. I’ve not really found many examples of
what people are doing with it so I’d love to see how your doing
things, it would be great to share patches etc and see how other
people are going about things.

Good Luck

JK

Hi thank you

I am using the make controller to make my videos play, no visual effects
nothing, I only want my videos inside my silhouette playing simultaneously,
and because of the sensors they start and end at different times. I can
imagine that it should be super easy to test, but I want to create a stable
patch and I am just wondering if people have ideas of how to start, such as
which objects should I use and which rendering system should I use too,
rather than starting to love simple video patches and then realize that it
won’t work.

I understand that is great to use the make controller via osc but when you
have more than one make controller and you do not have a stable network,
plus when you are sharing a network with 40 people, to add more things to it
for me at least, was a big problem. The mc.usb killed those problems. I am
not an Ethernet expert….

Thank you, I was just wondering if the list had those people too. I haven’t
seen a lot of examples and patches. I would be more than happy to share them
too.
