I'm creating a simple VJ app, and I want to have multiple previews.
The problem is that when I issue a "read" command to get the file going... it continues streaming from disk, even if i disconnect the metro clocking source. This means that 1 or 2 clip previews works okay, but 8 or 10 is impossible.
How do I get the previews setup so that the read isn't continuous, but each clip loads maybe to a frame and stops... then when i "throw it live" it runs (I'm also currently setting it up with an invisiible button so that preview "runs" when you click on each preview.
The idea is that maybe 8, 80x60 preview clips "load" (i.e. start reading) , and can be clicked on to initiate motion, but they won't all be continuously streaming from disk; only while mousedown, or when thrown to the main output "window"
