Can you do transitional fades with movies triggered from directory scanner?

mbira's picture

As the title says, I am triggering movies that are being pulled from the directory scanner and Structure Index Marker "Index" is being used to iterate through them.

Can you have a transitional fade between movies triggered this way?

I'm thinking not, but if so, how?

Thanks!

This comp might get you started, uses a directory scanner, splits the result in 2, and uses two movieplayers/billboards to achieve the transition.

Thanks for sharing this. I saw this earlier, and it looked like you were still working out some issues. I have it "sort of" working for me right now, but it'll take me some time to digest what is going on.

Thanks again for taking the time to reply!

Here's another way using CI Dissolve. Uses up/down triggers (keyboard, midi, etc.) to cycle through a folder of movie clips. Has modes for manual, auto advance and random. Hold up/down triggers to ramp speed. Hope it helps.
