Hey everyone. Sorry about the long mail, but I've been thinking about
this patch for a while, and I'm still a bit stumped about where to
start. Thanks in advance for any help...
OK, basic gist:
I want a patch that takes a full res video with sound (varying
lengths, usually an hour or two), then gives it back to me with all
the parts that have audio above or below a certain threshold removed
(and the gaps in between closed). The output must have synched sound
from the original.
So I guess jit.record in realtime is out, with the sound deal.
I kind of have an idea that I might use spigot~ (which I can't seem
to get to work on my MacBook Pro, Max/MSP v 4.6.2 and Jitter v. 1.6.2
- but will delay that question until synthesisters.com and
cycling74.com are back online, so I can search) and jit.vcr with
peakamp, but I wanted to know:
1. is there a way to have jit.vcr add on to the end, rather than
saving separate files?
2. if not, any better ideas?
3. if not, I figured I'd use sprintf to write files like movie1.mov,
movie2.mov, etc - up till how ever many (probably several hundred or
thousand). Anybody know how to easily stitch these together, either
in Jitter or another application.
4. Probably an easy one: what would the message be to jit.vcr (or
jit.record, or whatever you recommend) for the right sound/video
compression that would not require rendering in Final Cut Pro (NTSC
1. Any ideas on how I might adjust said patch to give a "minimum
length" of each splice? This is not absolutely necessary, but it was
something to think about... peakamp's speed and sample rate both come
to mind, but I worry I might miss something rather than give a
minimum length (which still might be ok, I'll only see when I test
this, but I wanted to get a few thoughts from the experts before I
Thanks so much again in advance!
