Hi from Scotland

Hi There

I am a graphic artist and therefore know very little about programming. I am trying to produce a video jukebox based on the iPhone photo app but cannot find a patch to enable the "swipe/flick' transition between videos. Do any of you guys have an idea of where to find something like this.

Cheers

Bren

Hello!

See how this works for you... I tied x swipe (needs three fingers) to increase through movie selection, and y swipe to decrease.

It has some non-obvious stuff going on (like the big Sprite tied to interaction, just to make evaluation work wherever you swipe), so feel free to ask questions.

A nice example of multi touch control.

I thought about it a little more, and it doesn't really make sense to tie one to vertical and the other to horizontal.

This version is probably what someone would think to do...

A swipe right increases through the movie list, while a swipe left decreases. Transitions are an exercise left to the reader (though feel free to ask).

Oh it occurred to me... I hope I'm thinking of the right thing when you mean swipe transition (I'm thinking finger swipes). I haven't used an iPhone in awhile.

Hi There

Yeh finger swipes are what I mean, but not on multitouch display, just a regular touch screen (i.e. just mouse control).

I have created a diagram of what I am trying to achieve (I should have done this to begin with to help me understand the concept better), basically a "video wall" where you can swipe from movie to movie either horizontally or vertically but not diagonally, all read from a folder of movies based on a grid naming system.
