I've made a video step sequencer. It was a fun and educational
process and I'd love to get some feedback on it so I can make it
I designed it for use in live performance -- specifically an
acting-and-visuals piece I'm working on -- so that I could move the
laptop out of the way and concentrate on acting. Hence the controls
are very simple and automatic. However, I did design it with other
uses in mind, i.e., it's reusable.
Features: it reads in up to 8 videos (at present) from either QT
movies or live camera (jit.qt.record), loops one or all steps, plays
forward, backward, or palindrome with variable speed, is resettable
and skippable, i.e., play next/previous/jump to step _n_. Also it's
fully abstracted so that you can add multiple sequencer
Please try to break it! I tried to foolproof it but I'm sure someone
can find a way to make it mess up. :) Any feedback you might have on
abstraction, optimization, etc would be very welcome.
