randomly loading single words in qc

lichtspiel's picture

hej everybody. i am trying to built a composition in qc where three lines consisting of single words are randomly combined whith each other.

so far i have use three simple "Image With String" patches displaying on a sprite - and i am filling thestring content later in resolume avenue.

however this is quite buggy. after saving the file in in resolume the content is deleted when i reload the the composition.

is there a way to do load randomly words from a textfile in qc?

cheers,

t.

Re: randomly loading single words in qc

already one step closer since i can set up the content in qc directly. thx for that -

does anyone know a way in displaying only a single word from an .rtf or .txt file havin a whole list of words inside

e.g

house fire kitchen

  • and i just want to display "house" or "fire" or "kitchen" randomly

setting the .txt with String with File will display

house fire kitchen

(sorry for my crazy english..)

It would mean reformatting the text into a .plist file to use Structure from File and File to String just saves a .plist.

They are useful in combination.

However, another approach can be found and further modified from the excellent ASCII JS examples to be found here http://kineme.net/Applications/Compositions/JavaScriptTextMessings, made by toneburst.
