43j-fourwaymix shader with jsmoviebank_modified.js


    Mar 17 2008 | 8:49 am
    Hello,
    And perhaps this message could be more adressed to Vade who wrote the jsmoviebank_modified.js object.
    I want to mix 3 videos with the 43j-fourwaymix shader, each of them calling files dynamically with a jsmoviebank_modified.js js object. Separately, everything is fine : the fourwaymix shader works fine, also does the seamless load of the videos with the jsmoviebank_modified.js (thanks a lot for this nice script Vade ! ).
    But when I connect the output of the js objects to the3 inputs of the fourwaymix shader, only the leftmost input does works, not the others. Although the 3 outputs of the videos are ok - tested with jit.pwindows. Which information or operation am I missing ? Is this a problem of colorspace ?
    And incidentally, a (certainly dummy) question : is there an object just returning (not converting) the colorspace type of an incoming video flow ?
    Thanks a lot in advance...
    Thierry

      Hi.
      Not a particularly helpful reply, I'm afraid - just another question..
      Thanks for the lead to jsmoviebank_modified.js - looks very useful and could solve an issue I have with a current project. I've found vade's original post on this, but I can't get the script to work - I think the format gets jumbled when I copy and paste it. Is there any way you (or anyone) could post the script as an attachment?
      Many thanks,
      Joseph

      I'm afraid I still can't get that to work - still plenty of line breaks in there. I can spot some of them - comments etc., but I don't have sufficient programming chops to spot them all. For what it's worth, I'm left with two error messages:
      • error: js: jsmoviebank_modified.js: Javascript SyntaxError: missing ; after for-loop condition, line 54 source line: movarray[i].dispose(); • error: js: no function index

      Hmmm.. ended up with an incomplete post.. here's the rest:
      Anyway, if either yourself or vade (if he's watching) could post the code as an attachment that should sort it..
      Thanks for your help, anyway - much appreciated.

      Ok, I looked at this and it mostly works as intended (it reports the end of the movie *right before* the end of the movie, so you remove some of the delay in switching the prerolled movies).
      Ive got some cruft in there since it was used in a Steven Segal automated trailer generator patch, but it works - I just tried it, and renewed my love for Segal.

      he is all of the above
      *sigh*
      god bless him.

      Thanks vade, but I can't see anything there? it's either some kind of Cageian code, or you didn't attach, or I'm being stupid..

      Or the mailing list/forum integration does not work. I attached via the mailing list. Oh well.
