I am trying to do something quite different from jit.record. I am trying to create a quicktime movie file non-sequencially. As in, i would like to splice single frames into larger sequences.
I am trying to use the Insert Edit commands for the jit.qt.matrix object, I also tried cut and paste with no luck.
They seem to have little documentation on how to correctly format them and all I have been able to figure out is by messing around with them
so far the thing that is giving me the most trouble is the insert command as described below
if I put in a message containing the source movie, the frame to be pulled, and the destination frame
insert /the/path/of/the/file.mov 29 30 17 18
it seems I have to add a frame to make a duration between the source start and end frames, so I choose the frame I want and the the end is that frame +1 (ex 29-30)
this seems to work fine! until I save the quicktime movie in jit.qt.movie, open it in quicktime and see that it has actually moved two frames over into the new sequence.
I can't seem to just cut one frame from a film and there seems to be no way of bringing a jitter matrix into a jit.qt.movie object.
when I try something like
insert /the/path/of/the/file.mov 29 29 17 17
