howdy jitter people
I'm a pretty experienced MaxMSP user but totally new to jitter.
I'm trying to program a patch that i can use for live editing of a video clip that is made out of many different .mov files (basically' it means that i'm trying to read and play many different files - one after the other in jit.qt.movie).
my problem is when i read a new file into jit.qt.movie, it takes time and mean while there is black screen in the jit.window.
if i'm trying to load different files into different jit.qt.movie, and then xfade them - they play slowly and abruptly.
i'm working an a macbook pro with 2.5 Ghz processor and 2GB of RAM.
the total size of my .mov files is about 300MB.
my question is how can i "preload" the files and trigger(read and play) them instantly with no latency? (like you do with the sfplay~ in MSP).
does it have something to do with the "loadram" message? (the reference doesn't say much about that).
