hi all... a little optimisation query...
working on an install where we need to play 12 videos simultaneously using jit.movie, and having issues with CPU usage - videos lagging etc on my quad core i7. our processing is minimal (just multiplying each by a gradient at this stage, then sent each to an individual videoplane).
It seems that the bottleneck is at the playback end.. even without the videoplane output our CPU usage is 200% + - similar to loading these videos separately in quicktime outside max.
is there a setting in jit.movie that can optimise this? we've gone for @output_texture 1 so we can do everything on the GPU, but still chugging along (jittery playback - no pun intended ;-))
any advice/info would be appreciated..
