i am building an installation with audio, video and sound. the sound is linked to the quicktime movie, so the sync is rock solid here. i am using midi signals to control the lights via DMX. the whole installation is described more in detail here: http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=34052
so far i have been playing the audio and midi from pro tools, doing the DMX parsing in max/msp.
i have recorded the midi data from pro tools within max using the 'seq' object, sending it 'record'. i send a midi note in the beginning of the timeline, and i use this to trigger the video in time.
now than i am trying to make everything run from max, the midi is drifting out of sync!
is there a way to link the video with the midi timecode? my original idea was having QT play back the midi, but i found that it is impossible to route this data out of QT -- i can only use the data to play music with the QT midi engine?!?
when i look at the movie tracks in the QT inspector, i can see i have an audio time code track right there. can i use this to control the seq object? how?
