Hi we are building a big video sequencer in MaxMSP 6 and we would like some advice .
The goal is to make a sequencer with 3 tracks with 12 steps each. (audio and video)
Each step has a different short videoclip (3 sec) and is synced with an audioclip.
The videos are mixed together with alpha blending. (playing several videos layered on top of each other)
What we have build now is causing a lot of latency in the videos.
Framerates drop to 10 fps.
What we already tried:
- changing the internal video clock to higher speed
- reducing the number of jit.qt.movie objects
- using jit.gl.videoplane for video rendering
Does anyone know how to build a patch that can play 36 short 3 second video files without latency?
Also advice would be appreciated on how to encode the quicktime videos (or png sequences)
we are currently using Apple Quicktime movies encoded PnG millions+
ps: all the umenu and dropfile objects are for easily changing the clips and audio.
