Switch prob with video AND sound

hello!

i want to feed 1 single jit.pwindow with 3 different movies in random order, without triggering these videos from the beginning (without interrupting video run).

this works perfectly well up to now. i attached my patch to this thread.

but:
the sounds of all videos run permanently – although the jit.pwindow only shows 1 video at a time. how can i synchronize sound & video? (sound should simply stop when its video isn’t shown)

i tried it with “decide” followed by “sel 0 1″, but without success.. where’s my misconception in this one?
Smile

cheers!

Ok, that somehow doesn’t suite my idea, but thank you anyway! (I had the feeling my patch was getting close – yours looks quite “complicated” for a rather basic matter (ain’t it?).

I’ll try to work it out with jit.xfade & some sliders (used in a roughly manner, grin) and see what that does for me. And by that hope to manage the sound intervals as well!

Cheers!

@vol 0 to qt.movie when you don’t want to hear the sound.

Oh, I sure do!
Each sound to its own video! But up to now, the 3 videos change, while the sound of all 3 run all at once. Sound A doesn’t disappear with video A – it just keeps running whilst the picture changes to video B…

Haven’t found the solution yet, here my patch so far:

Any ideas?

just as said rob you have to set vol to 0.
it’s not because you switch the video signal, the signal (audio + video) doesn’t play anymore.

i suggest you do some tutorials.

here’s a patch (it’s not well programmed but just to illustrate):

i’ve done nothing else the past week, not much left of my [command] + H and [command] + R keys. must have missed out on that part…

thank you very much! (missing out on the last bit frustrates the most)

all the best
