Using ~phasor as timing object for jitter video mixer

    Apr 06 2012 | 8:03 pm
    Hi All,
    I was wondering if ~phasor would be a very solid timing source for a video mixer which has 2 objects "playing" simultaneously. I'm just trying to keep the 2 in sync, (i.e. if the 2 movies start at the same time, they stay synced) Would ~phasor work more accurately than metro or qmetro?
    If ~phasor is how you do it... how do you do it? I'm at a loss for how you connect things up. Somewhat familiar with Max and Jitter, but not really MSP.
    I can find examples of all the video mixing tools I need with fades and FX all using GPU, and can get several cool patches happening with that aspect, but nothing that seems to illustrate how to use ~phasor instead of metro.
    Any ideas (with some specifics) or even an example little patch would be so wonderful!

      here's a way of doing it using phasor~ with edge~, but I don't really know if this would be more accurate than having a plain old metro....
