I've been developping with MAX a video mixer for displaying video movies on stage, controling the mix time between sevral files and adjusting the playback time for theater peformances. (on i7 PC, SSD)
This project started years ago before HD was THE reference. I'm still improving the patch but I still have problems with smooth video playback.
I've been reading the jitter receipes and all the threads on the forums, Vade's advices and it all... most of them were posted 2 years ago...
Since Max 6, the "old" jit.qt.movie object seams to be the only one available and stays a poor alternative for HD playback within max.
I'd like to know where we are now.
Better objects? Better codecs? what's the deal with QT? in HD?
Using openGL and several slab for cropping, smooth edges and adjustment makes the video unsmooth in HD. I'd like to make some other treatments but the base is unconfortable with quicktime object.
Any new experience?
