"latency" switching from rate 1 to rate -1 (jit.qt.movie)


    Jun 16 2010 | 4:13 pm
    greetings...
    assuming iam playing my movie at rate 1 (jit.qt.movie) then with a button press switch to rate -1 the movie stops for about 500ms
    i want to get this "latency" down as good as i can...
    can you give me any tips how to?
    (the same "latency occurs with imovie and movie object too. loadram 1 -> jit.qt.movie does not make a difference)

      what movie codec are you using? should be photo-jpeg, animation, apple intermediate, pro-res...

      hey, thanks for your reply
      i convert with quick time on win7.. i only have photo-jpeg and animation codec. i get the same delay with both codes... not a ms difference.
      i also tested converting the video with both codes in minimum and maximum quality, still the exact same result.
      i have no delay in switching from rate 1 to lets say rate 5, once i play reverse there is also no delay in switching from -1 to -5 or so...
      it only occurs while switching from something negativ to something positive...
      any other suggestions?
