I am working on a jitter project where I need to be able to "change channels" between different coll banks of videos. Right now I have each individual channel working, short clips cycle through randomly, but I don't know the best way to the four channels into the jit.window object.
Each channel will have some distinct processing, so I can't just change which clips the jit.qt.movie object is reading, the channels are distinct all of the way until the jit.window. Would it be too resource heavy to have different jit.qt.movie objects for each "channel"? I am new to jitter, so I am not really sure how it handles resources (are the jit.qt.movie objects the most resource intensive in this? Or will it be the jit.window?)
Also, is there a simple alternative in jitter to the gate object? So that I could select which jit.qt.movie object is being sent to the jit.window?
