Any way to know when is done sending a static matrix?

    Can't find any doc info about reporting when it has finished sending a matrix (static images in my case). I'm looking to load a series of images from disk and transmit them via and I seem to be crashing using uzi or clocked counter to do it... so I'm looking to trigger the next load/transmit after sensing that the previous transmission is complete.
    The bigger picture goal here: I want to load new source photos from disk without interrupting animation clocked by CPU. My hope is that I can load the images in a second Max runtime and send them to the main runtime via without interrupting the clocked animation. Any other solutions are very much welcome!

      idk if says when it is finished, but in the meanwhile you could send a "done" message from the client (, once it has received the matrix. It would require sending also smthg like identifiers, or counting how much "done" messages are received.

      Thanks, vichug. Thought of that... but I'm not finding a way to have send any kind of done status either. For that matter, I'm not seeing how to get the jit.matrix that follows it on the receiving end to deliver a done status either. (jit.matrix bangs outlet 2 when finishing an importmovie, but apparently not after receiving from

      you could use an extra object (f.e. maxhole) for sending the message back:

      Thanks, tobiasros! That seems to have given me a solution. ;)
