Hi. I have a situation where I send some info into a subpatch that picks a random video clip and then it sends that file (actually a message that says "read ") into another patch that applies a random video effect to the clip. I've actually got several instances of this whole scenario, one for each screen. Like so:
[random clip picker] -> [random fx] -> [jit.pwindow #1]
[random clip picker] -> [random fx] -> [jit.pwindow #2]
[random clip picker] -> [random fx] -> [jit.pwindow #3]
This is all inside of a larger patch, and the subpatches are abstractions, saved as external files. When I run it however, all 3 screens have the same video on them -- same files, with same effects. I've been up late & I'm getting pretty sleepy, but .... it's not supposed to do this, is it? It doesn't seem like I should need to resort to poly~ or some such craziness for this, right?
I'm a brand new user, so this is the first time I've ever tried this.
In case you want a more visual explanation of what I'm doing, here's the relavant selection:
