I am working on a patch for my friend that seemed simple at first, but now I am running into some problems that I need help solving.
I want to drop a folder into "umenu"
and then route the video selected into a movie window.
I want to be able to do this to four videos simultaneously.
Then connect them all into a final window for a full screen output.
So far I have the menu populating, and I have used "gate" to be able to switch the video to a window.
I am trying to keep with patch really consolidated, for faster processing.
But I have the feeling I will need to make four menus.
Any suggestions on how to have one menu
that supplies 4 videos to seperate windows?
well, one menu for the videos, another small one to determine which screen it goes to? Or four toggles, a tab, or a matrixctrl to choose where it goes. Regardless, you’ll need some way to choose where it’s going, but you can definitely avoid having four menus.
Don’t worry about the umenus being a problem for processing, their "footprint" on the CPU is likely magnitudes less than even one of your videos. However, saving GUI space and keeping things uncluttered is a good thing to keep in mind.
