bad idea :/

Here's a sample composition that will show previews of the movies. A few unfortunate things:

There's no good way to input a path from QC - the keyboard patch is not good for free character input.

The QuickTime patch is horribly slow, even when the movie isn't even playing -- this is because it's inside an iterator, and must open/close/decode the first frame of each movie for each frame of the composition.

If you can solve the movie image problem, this might get you started, but I can't think of a reliable way to do that at the moment....
