LONG time Max/MSP/Jitter user and thought I'd pop in to ask about spigot~ again. I've been waiting patiently since QT7 for the ability to access movie audio instead of using a cache'd file. My setup has 4750 videos that are on average 3 to 7 minutes long. First, caching is very impractical for me and it waste's a lot of drive space. Second, the delay on something not being cache'd was always a problem for me.
RIght now, my VJ software does not allow me to work like a traditional DJ system and I'd LOVE to change that. In apps like Serato Scratch, there is no problem doing what I want to do, and it looks like their subsystem is QT as well. Has anyone heard if there is any plans to fix this? I knew that a Jitter rewrite was being talked about around Max 4 timeframe. Or, is there some other way to do this and I just don't know it. I tried EVERY solution I could find during Max4 and none of them worked well. Thanks!
