Switch prob with video AND sound

    Nov 18 2009 | 10:50 am
    i want to feed 1 single jit.pwindow with 3 different movies in random order, without triggering these videos from the beginning (without interrupting video run).
    this works perfectly well up to now. i attached my patch to this thread.
    but: the sounds of all videos run permanently - although the jit.pwindow only shows 1 video at a time. how can i synchronize sound & video? (sound should simply stop when its video isn't shown)
    i tried it with "decide" followed by "sel 0 1", but without success.. where's my misconception in this one?

      maybe vps 4 tutotrial from andrew could be a really good start.

      Ok, that somehow doesn't suite my idea, but thank you anyway! (I had the feeling my patch was getting close - yours looks quite "complicated" for a rather basic matter (ain't it?).
      I'll try to work it out with jit.xfade & some sliders (used in a roughly manner, grin) and see what that does for me. And by that hope to manage the sound intervals as well!

      @vol 0 to qt.movie when you don't want to hear the sound.

      Oh, I sure do! Each sound to its own video! But up to now, the 3 videos change, while the sound of all 3 run all at once. Sound A doesn't disappear with video A - it just keeps running whilst the picture changes to video B...
      Haven't found the solution yet, here my patch so far:
      Any ideas?

      just as said rob you have to set vol to 0. it's not because you switch the video signal, the signal (audio + video) doesn't play anymore.
      i suggest you do some tutorials.
      here's a patch (it's not well programmed but just to illustrate):

      i've done nothing else the past week, not much left of my [command] + H and [command] + R keys. must have missed out on that part...
      thank you very much! (missing out on the last bit frustrates the most)
      all the best
