How to read a movie triggered by a bang


    Dec 13 2012 | 12:04 am
    Before going into the problem, here is the patch idea: -web cam with facial detection -once held for X seconds a video at 20% opacity plays -facial detection breaks for X seconds and a 100% opacity video plays over the webcam
    The framework is all set, I just don't know how to get a video to play via a bang message.
    I am trying to have a movie play once a bang is sent to it. I am new to Max, and I don't know how to get results. Any ideas on how to make this happen?

      You misunderstand. The video is set up; I just have a have a bang on "read movie1.mov" , but nothing happens.
      EDIT: Nevermind. It's all working. The issue is when I put video through a switch, no video picture comes back out.
