I'm quite new to Max, and so I'd love to get some feedback on my patch as I think I'm going about it in a very convoluted way.
Ideally, I'm aiming to have 4 videos loaded into my patch, each attached to a 'trigger'. Depending on which of these 4 'triggers' is activated by an external input (into the 'r left' and 'r right' objects), the corresponding video is reset to frame 1, played and then the latter section (past frame 2200) is looped. The final thing is that the ability to switch to and/or reset any of the videos needs to delayed for 3seconds before any of the triggers can be activated once again.
I managed to more or less achieve this using the imovie object, 'switch' function and a 'dot.debounce' object to delay reactivation, but as far as I can tell, the 'switch' function doesn't exist for qt.movie.
The problem the patch above is that the layout of either of input (left or right) allows you to switch between the videos, even though the 'debounce' object is delaying either being reset to frame 1. And although I've been looking at looppoints, loopstart etc, I'm yet to get my head around that part of the problem.
Thanks for any help,
