using prepend read to load .mov files into jit.qt.movie?

January 9, 2009 | 12:20 am

Hi, I created a sample manipultion patch using prepend read so that the buffer would automatically read any audio file dropped into the dropfile object. I tried doing the same thing with the jit.qt.movie object but nothing happened. Does anyone know why?

Thank you in advance!

hard to say without a patch…

patch is attached. It is a bit messy but on the left hand side of the patch on the left hand movie screen there is a drop file over it. When i drop the file into the box the signal goes into the patcher. the prepend set is working, but the prepend read is not making the jit.qt.movie object read the file.

Anyone know what im doing wrong?

The problem is you are simply setting the text in the message box, you are not sending the message from there through the [prepend read] to the [jit.qt.movie]. If you drop in a file then open the patcher and click on the message box you will notice that it works. You can fix it by replacing the entire subpatch with the [prepend read] object.
