jit.qt.movie: Can find file ..
Maybe you are not indicating the movie file extension, like e.g. "moviename.mov"? Also you should check the spaces in the name of the file like "my movie.mov", in this case you should indicate to jit.qt.movie the message [read "my movie.mov"], with quotes
if you want to access directly a file you must search its path. You can do that by opening your terminal and dragging the file on it. Copy the path and place it after ‘read’. you will get something similar to this:
let us know if it works
@ efe: Your solution works, however, this patch is part of an installation . I am making the patch here and will pass it on as a standalone to my client who does not have max. Is there another solution possible?
When I drag a folder on top of it, I only get one cell, not various cells (the folder contains 3 films)
Works fine here (MacBook Pro, OS 10.5.8). See if the "media" folder that comes with max works for you (I get 27 files loaded). Maybe I should also mention that right now only .mov files are accepted. If you have different file formats you need to change the "types" message sent to the [folder] object.
Hope that helps.
Ok, It worked, I had some other types. This time I only used mov
@MIB: I was wondering if I could use mpeg4 files; They are smaller in filesize so I would prfer using them. I just have to load a message that says mp4 right?
to use mpeg4, you will have to edit max-fileformats.txt to add mp4.
can be something like:
max fileformat .mp4 MP4 0 Video moviefile;
what robtherich said I guess :)
never actually tried that before…
Can you tell me where to find the max-fileformats.txt. Spotlight cannot find it.
I changed the fileformats.txt but when I choose mp4 i only get an aiff file named D in the list.
