jit.qt.movie edit commands - how to know when operation is done?


    May 24 2007 | 3:30 pm
    Hi all,
    I am looking into the edit commands of jit.qt.movie.
    Is there a way to detect whether an edit operation is ready, similar to the "read blah.mov 1" after a read operation?
    Cheers, Mattijs

      AFAIK, they are synchronous in the low priority queue, so they will be done before you another event can be processed: i.e. "t b editop" bangs after editop is done provided that the event is generated from the low priority queue.

      This is correct, and why the batch processors in the examples/jitter- examples/demos folder work at all.

      Ok, I briefly had the idea that the edit operations weren't synchronous, thanks for confirming they are. It was probably a mistake in my patch.
