I've been working on a video step sequencer -- one that works exactly like an audio step sequence, but uses short video clips instead of audio samples. There are up to 8 possible slots for loading videos -- and four different ways to arrange those videos in the window (full screen, vertical stripes, horizontal stripes, and random rectangles).
I've attached a version without any video footage along with this post -- to load footage into the sequencer, drop a couple folders with video clips in them into the footage folder; the sequencer should then load them automatically when it next opens. If you'd rather just jump in and work with some pre-supplied video, you can download this version from my webspace:
In general, the functionality is there, but I find there's more lag in loading/playing back the video files than I would like. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can speed up playback? It becomes clear, particular when there are multiple videos going, that playback is laggy and irregular. Is it just an issue of having 8 QTs/Videoplanes going, and there's no way around it? Or are there some steps I could take to streamline the process a bit? I'd love whatever thoughts you might have.
