This seems to come up a bit on the forum but I haven't been able to find anything that I can make work.
I have a very simple patch. Just crossfading between two jit.qt. movie objects with dials for controlling playback speed. No effects or slabs. The clips are 640 x 480. I've tried PJPEG at 75% and Apple Pro-Res. The codec doesn't seem to matter. The clips still stutter during playback. I'm really hoping for smooth playback as almost all my clips are text animations (rolls, crawls, etc) and the stutter is super noticeable. The clips play real smooth in a standard QT player but once I try to play them in Max they stutter. Any tips to optimize my video playback great appreciated.
