uzi's too fast for ram


    Nov 26 2007 | 10:01 pm
    Hello, I try to load a set of jpegs in an ubumenu then dynamically in [jit.matrix] . The destnation is a [jit.matrixset] and a [uzi] + [counter] help me to do that and for the index.
    The problem is that I have a few big resolution images. It seems uzi is too fast for [jit.matrix] & [jit.matrixset].
    I could downsample these images, but I would like to know if you have a idea about what's the best way to load dynamically in ram.
    thank you.

      hello again !
      Could [jit.qt.movie] with loadram message be a clever way to load dynamically ?

      you want to use the rightmost outlet of qt.movie with route. it outputs "read filename.mov 1" when a movie is finished loading. you can use that to trigger the next movie read.

      ..and [jit.matrix] do same ?

      a quick test reveals that it does indeed to the exact same thing, except "importmovie" replaces "read".

      Here's a patch with your suggestion. .. but I can't do it working correctly. Is the ubu late or desynchronized with the loading ?

      i've used this in the past to populate a menu and randomly select from it. it works with poly~, which contains an instance of jit.qt.movie. no idea if this will fix your problem, but maybe...
      -- save as "polyQTmovie" --
      -- save as "whateva" --

      Thanks Robtherich, Please could you tell me what is the [urnNR] object ?

      ... I replaced it by [random].
      thanks again !

      i think urnNR comes with the the standard max distro. it is an abastraction, yes, but it should be somewhere in either the patches folder, the examples folder, or the tutorials folder.
      it can also be replaced with urn.
      but here it is:
