Bugreport: buffer~: importing sound track with modified start time

Jul 12 2007 | 2:06 pm

Hi all,


I have a quicktime movie with 1 sound track that has a start time other than 0.

When buffer~ imports this sound track, it does account for the uncommon length (the track is shorter than the entire movie, seeing that the track has an offset) but it -doesn’t- account for the start time.

Steps to reproduce:

Here is an example of such a quicktime movie:

Open it in quicktime and press Cmd+J to see that there is only one sound track in this movie, which has a start time of about 8 seconds and a length of (accordingly) the duration of the entire movie (about 22 seconds) minus the start time, which amounts to 14 seconds.

Now try to import this movie in buffer~:

#P message 24 39 72 196617 import 0 -1 2;
#P newex 24 60 44 196617 buffer~;
#P connect 1 0 0 0;

After importing, doubleclick the buffer and you’ll see that the buffer did import 14 seconds of audio data, -but- started reading from time 0 instead of the start time.

Please let me know if you can confrim this.
