I’m having a problem with the playbar object. It keeps disappearing or not drawing when the patcher window it’s in is reopened.
Does anyone know of a solution?
I’m using Max/MSP 4.2.1, OSX 10.4.6 with current QuickTime.
I’m experiencing this problem too, did you solve it and if not then does anyone know why this happens?
In my case, I actually want the playbar object to stay hidden. You can hide it in the normal hide-on-lock way but whwn you connect it to a movie, it pops up again – although on subsequent re-opening of the patch window it fails to re-draw.
I tried simply burying it in a sub-patch or hiding it offscreen, but it seems that the playbar object mus have an ‘on-screen’ moment in order for it to function, otherwise the movie its connected to will not play. I’ve tried covering it up with panels, bpatchers, the movie viewer (imovie object) but it just pokes on through.
