hello, i have a problem. i’m running the latest versions of maxmsp
jitter and osx on a quad g5 with a very clean second internal raptor
10000 rpm disk.
a very simple patch, containing one metro, two quicktime players 720
576, connected to two jit.pwindows and a ‘read a.mov’ and a ‘read
b.mov’ message box, connected to each of the two qt players. when i
load a different clip on one player, the output on the other player
shows a hickup, the output stops for some miliseconds (it’s very
visible). is there a way to solve this ? of course there is the
possibility of references movies, of one movieobject for each clip in
a folder, etc. but i’m looking for a more elegant solution. i’m
actually hoping i’m overlooking some incredibly efficient preload
quicktime function, but i guess not ..
This helps me — If you can anticipate all the files you’re going to use, load them each once before starting your session. I find the load time the first time is noticeable, but subsequent loads are much less noticeable. I still typically get a little hiccup, just not as bad.
