Interactive movies

Hi everybody, I am quite new on Quartz Composer. I'm developing a project in my university in which i need to project multiple interactive videos (10 at least). The idea is to project 10 loops surrounding the screen and each one has a video to display (when it is chosen by the user). The idea is sort like this one: http://2009.doclab.org/img/events/pictures/480/1.jpg

I am thinking about Wii remote when the user wants to interactive with the movies.

Is it possible to make a project in Quartz Composer? It has not necessary to be in this dimension. Between 10 and 20 movies it is ok. I am grateful for any help!

Re: Interactive movies

sounds a good idea, I think that the first thing to check is if you hardware can handle that amount of load, video play back can take a bit of cpu time.

Re: Interactive movies

thank you for your answer. my videos are very small (about 5 to 10 seconds) with about 300kb. i tried in max msp but i found qc better to handle with. i just want to be sure if this is possible.
