Jitter with poly~ ; How to restart film clip at start point

Aug 27 2014 | 2:24 am

I’m trying to create a patch (based on ./examples/jitter-examples/video/quicktime/PolyMovie/Poly~ForMovies.maxpat) that restarts the clips every time and not starts up where it ended last time. It must be a simple message I need, I just can’t figure it out! Loop is off.
The problem is that when I want to start for instance clip 5 the second time, it won’t play since it’s trying to start up at the frame where it ended last time.
Thanks a lot.

Send a ‘time 0’ message to at the moment when you want to reset it to the beginning of the movie.

Hi Christopher. Thank you! Just wondering, is there any difference between sending frame $1 or time 0?

there is no difference in the outcome between frame 0 and time 0

Thanks for clarifying this!
