Sampler

Hi all,

Was wondering if you could give me a bit of help on this one, if there is a way of making this a bit less complicated and cluttered.

Basically this is a basic video sampler with an ability to select what has been sampled. Hold the relevant number from 1 to 5, for a couple of second and then pick what you want to view on the bigger output. C - clears everything. You will need a plugin that is in the folder. It wasn't developed by me, so im not taking any credit for that. Also how do i make a specific button, like C, not to be active globally all the time, and only clear the selected output.

Hope this all makes sense.

Thanks

Quickly before i dive in here and help with your actual problem...

What are the benefit of using this 'sampler' plugin rather than the stock Queue patch? Baring in mind the Queue patch works within a iterator? By using the an iterator you could reduce the size of your composition, and keep dynamics?

Re: Sampler

yeah, thats the plugin. I am still really new to all this, so i wasn't really sure what is the best to use. The only reason i used the sampler plugin, as i didn't know how to make it any other way =) i saw the an example with buttons, so i used that for my selector, so thats why i have demultiplexers in my original QC file. If there is another and easier way of creating the button selector thing, then i am happy to give it a go.

Thanks everyone.

The Sampler accounts for time and can sample video at a much higher rate and for a greater duration than you'll achieve with a Queue patch. If you try with a Queue patch the output will be mis-timed (speed up and slow down, skip) as framerate fluctuates.

Re: Sampler

Thanks for the clarification Tom, in all fairness to the queue patch held up well in my tests. However i'm positive your solution would be best (as why would you make it :) ).

One request... is it possible to get the sampler working in an iterator?
