video playback graphical interface? a la grid

    May 19 2006 | 1:28 am
    hey all. i seem to remember in the archives there being posted some sort of graphical interface for video playback that used a sample frame from the video file as the visual placeholder for playback, much as i believe the grid family of software does. unfortunately i can't for the life of me find the magic search incantation to make it appear from the archives. are there any kind souls out there that can point me in the right direction? thanks!

      Grid Pro and Grid are Max based apps, so its definitely possible. In fact, it isnt too hard. max here is a very un-optimal implementation - something to get you started.
      you should be thinking in terms of abstractions (hint, make the pwindows into abstractions and use # 1 for the index the pwindow will trigger), etc etc.

      note I have a subtle bug in the patch I posted which I didnt catch in testing it.
      togedge only reports *transitions* between one and 0, and im using it to help with reporting whether or not a number is larger than, or smaller than [> 5]. So, we can potentially get two 1s in a row or two 0's in a row (or more). togedge wont output anything in those cases. bad mojo.
      replace togedge with [sel 1 0] and all will be well in the cosmos.
