Fade in/out image slideshow from folder

Bodysoulspirit's picture

Hey guys,

I was trying to accomplish the easy fade in/out image slideshow from a folder. Managed to do it, but the hard way. There must be way simpler then mine.

So this post is double intended:

1 - Share the file so people can use it if needed

2 - Any improvements, ideas, help is welcome …

Cheers

PS: This composite uses no Kineme custom patch as it is intended to work on any mac without the plugins installed

Hey guys,

New version, less memory usage I guess, smoother.

But still not simple.

I know I have to use the "Dissolve" patch, but haven't figure out how yet how to push the images in the right order to it.

Improvements welcome, else, enjoy

Got to make a Dissolve patch version …

However, I think the animation is better using alpha values. And this patch makes a noise on my MBP when switching value :)

Back again, new revamped version

But guys, why does this simple thing seems so complicated to me ? Am I doing it totally the wrong way ? What should I use ? An accumulator patch ? An iterator and play on the alpha values ?

Credits appreciated if used, improvements welcome

Cheers

Re: Fade in/out image slideshow from folder

I made a slideshow using images from a folder.

• I used wave generator patches to define the moment to change the images and to apply the fade with a fade patch

• Images are shown in 2 sprite patches

• Images are shown in shuffle order (I also used the javascript code from http://kineme.net/Discussion/DevelopingCompositions/Structureshuffling)

• Choose the image show duration in seconds

• The image transitions are more smooth and slower

I hope this composition can be used by anyone who is still using QC these days :)
