Is there a robust method for detecting the end of video playback in Quartz Composer?

Thank you

Fading between patches

Hello All!

I am new to quartz composer, but avidly finding my way around. I am working on a new performance that involves switching between four patches running different effects, I have the composition set up so that I key command switching between video feeds/patches. My problem is I would like to fade to black in between each composition and then fade into the next one. I imagine this is pretty simple to some, Any ideas?

I have also been trying to get this work with Qlab loading the quartz compositions, but I cant seem to get the fader to work for the video feed. Perhaps someone has worked with quartz and Qlab before! Help my performance is getting closer!!!

I was asked to give a guest lecture in John Bowditch's "Future of Digital Media" class at Ohio University a few weeks ago.

Here's a trimmed-down version:
