My task is as follows:
I need to record live video feed, up to 1 min worth, save that to hdd with a generic name (this I have already created a patch for thanks to help of this forum) but my next step is to pull up that video and then play it on loop. (I will do other things as well, but this is the basic overall concept of what I need to achieve, and the part that I am stuck on). Once that has been achieved for one video, I will need to achieve this for an unlimited amount of files - but for now lets say 4 videos. Becuase the plan is that my sensor will set off the recording and record a max of 1 min, then this is to be played (outputed on projector) (either immediately or delayed - not too important at the moment) on a loop. Each time a new video is recorded, i want to add it to my set of video being played. I would like to get the scissors and glue patch to do this. What I mean is that say the first video plays in position top left, and then when a second video is generated, it takes over position top left and pushed the first video to the next position for arguments sake be that top right (as the generic scissors and glue patch divides it up into four sections).
There is a lot here to contemplate, but if I can get the basic framework working, then i will be able to modify it later.
Just for testing purposes I havnt worried about the sensor at the moment I just have a toggle to turn on and off the live feed and to stop start the recording. within the recording section I have been able to generate a generic name for the file and each time a recording is done, it creates a new name.
I guess the first thing I need help with is a patch that will store the generic names so that it can later be read by a patch that will replay the video... I hope this isnt too confusing. Once I figure that out then the next step will be to set it up so the videos that are being played are sent to the jit.glue patch and are stiched together, each time moving them one position as a new video is played...............!
here is my current patch to work from
ANY help is appreciated and like all projects are working on a deadline!
Thanks so much (even if u direct me to help tutorials or threads that already talk about this)
