      We link a movie player to Logic. But not exactly as a plugin completely contained in Logic. I was suprised to see that a pluggo plugin supports udp. So we use the udpsend object for the plugin to communicate to a stand-alone max patch that plays multiple movies and maps them on 3D objects (and some other nice stuff). This effectively turns Logic into an audiovisual composing tool.

      somebody made one .. its called movieplayer.
      but you could try it yourself by using the
      quicktime player object and syncing it by
      calculating virtual frame positions using
      [plugsync] it is relatively straight forward.
