I've been trying to work with a remixed version of Andrew Benson's VPS 4 patch and i've been running into issues with loading a large database of clips into the patch. All of the clips are 720p compressed as Photo-JPEG, being run off of an 3ghz 8 core mac with 4 gigs of ram, OS 10.5.8.
Once I load more than 40 clips from a folder, by the time the clips are almost all loaded, max crashes and a still from the clip fills the screen. I have mixed in elements from Vade's optimization examples as well as changing asyncread to read.
Ideally, I would like to have a database of around 450 clips ranging from 4-12 seconds long a piece to work with for this project I am undertaking. My guess is that the loadram poly~ method will probably not work well for this. Is there any other way to have a clean cut from clip to clip like what is seen in AB's patch, or am I asking too much of the system?
