I’m looking for a good way to generate thumbnails from a folder which become a gui, linking to video files.
In this thread http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=11882 there is talk of some ready made feature coming in Max 5. I haven’t found one – does it exist.
I’ve found a way to do it but it is a bit clunky and involves loading each movie and extracting a frame from it, then putting it in a jitter matrix.
I guess if I saved the matrix and only loaded new files (zl compare?) and added them to the matrix that would probably do it.
But I am tired and now realizing I am hoping for an off the shelf solution!
I was looking into this idea the other day, while working on some ideas for a new live video patch I’m trying to put together. The attached is what I came up with. This is based on the Video Processing System articles, but until I can find time to finish this and document it, I offer this up as an undocumented and probably over-complicated solution.
That is really helpful thanks – similar to what I was doing but a lot more efficient!
A couple of my videos didn’t show up proper colorwise but sure I can get to the bottom of that.
very nice. thanks andrew!
