video clips into menu?

March 21, 2009 | 10:01 pm

Hello
I have a question that I know is probably really simple, but I’ve been looking for an answer for several hours and not having luck. Basically I have built a patch where I am triggering all my video clips by banging individual "read xxx.mov" messages. I want to be able to just load all my video clips into a umenu or something like that and then trigger them. When I do this with audio I have been making buffer objects but there dosen’t seem to be a buffer object for video clips. Basically how do you load your video clips into a menu that you can bang with number messages or a midi device?
thanks a lot,

jjr

Hope I understood you correctly. Here’s how to drop a folder of movie files into a umenu:

just posted an update to my previous post but just in case you’re checking via email or ran into this same confusion-point, just remember to open up the inspector for a umenu and check the ‘Auto-Populate’ option.
