Quick Loading into jit.qt.movie


    Jan 31 2008 | 5:49 pm
    Hello, I'm loading 5 movies into 5 jit.qt.movies at the same time. I find that the loading time is to long (2 - 3 seconds)… I’m trying to load the movies with the two usual techniques: using read-loadram to load only several frames (0 - 3); or preroll 1 with asyncread. I start the 5 movies later and all at the same time.the movies are long, several minutes. I’m using and imac and the HD is 5400 rpm, could I improve the loading using an external HD firewire 7200 rpm 16MB to read the movies? Can anyone give me any tips on quick loading?. Using latest MaxMspjitter/latest quicktime/imac intell 2GHz/2G ram/Windows XP SP2 Many thanks, Felix

      use poly for movies and load the movies with preroll and async read. should be very fast, but you are limited by your disk.
      Ramdisk is also an option on OS X, but unless you have LOTS of spare ram, chances are you will swap to disk and any benefits of the ramdisk will be lost.

      Thanks MJ and Vade for the help! The Ramdisk seems the quickest way, and it exist for Windows too, the problem is that I have to store 40 movies and only got 2G, I could go to 4G but it’s not enough. And I would like to have the movies after rebooting. Vade, I don’t understand the advantage using the poly for movies here. If I understand well (and maybe I don’t get it), poly load several movies in different instances and it plays only one at each time switching between them. In my case I have to load them at the same time, wait and then play the 5 movies together, then load 5 other movies again and play them …and so on. So I should use five poly objects and load each movie in each poly. I’ll have five objects with one instance in each. Do I get any benefit using this approach? I’m missing something about poly for movies?. Thanks again, F

      Hi, well, let's make a basic patch for testing so that you can correct me... I get almost the same loading time for all these methods. Maybe i'm doing something wrong ...

      Hi, sorry for the spamming. Maybe this observation is interesting for some of you... Finally the problem I have with the loading time of movies is due to my Os setup, windows XP under bootcamp/Leopard. It seems that it takes ages for windows to access de HD. When I do the same test (see patch in precedent message) with different OS setups I get an extremely different result. WinXP/imac/Bootcam under Leopard: Time of loading around 3000ms Leopard/Same Imac: Time of loading around 50 ms WinXP/Vaio/Slower HD: Time of loading around 200 ms
      … this is the first limit I find using MaxMspJitter with windows XP under bootcamp …

      Ah, Ive read about slow disk access in bootcamp.
      this might be helpful - although this was an issue PREVIOUS to leopars upgraded 10.5 drivers. Have you installed the bootcamp drivers that come on the 10.5 DVD? If you installed bootcamp previously, you will not have the latest bootcamp drivers from Apple.
      Good luck.

      key word: "should"
      :)
      It was very common when bootcamp initially came out for it to have subpar performance in certain configs - sata disk IO being one of those areas, 3gb /switch, etc. which is why I remembered :P Just google "bootcamp sata" and you get results about performance issues. With clean/newer installs it should not be an issue, but, theres that 'should' again :)
