Getting iTunes composition working

nickharambee's picture


The attached composition has been revised from a composition I used to use with iVisualize, to generate a visualisation in iTunes. I have needed to use the new track info patch to display the track info in the visualisation as iVisualize no longer works with iTunes. The new patch works fine, but the part of the composition that generated a slideshow from images found in the album folder isn’t working, and I’m not sure what aspect of the composition needs changing. I had some help with the previous composition and it was designed a long time ago, so I've forgotten exactly how it all fits together.

Essentially the composition is designed to count the number of images in the folder and then display each image as the song plays, e.g. if there are 4 images and the track is 3 minutes long then each image should be displayed for 45 seconds with a fade between images. For some reason no images are showing. I can’t work out where the track length is calculated - this can be extracted from the track info patch, but isn’t linked up in the composition, so I wonder if this is the issue. There doesn’t seem to be a way of testing live in QC with the track info, or at least I haven’t found one, so troubleshooting is difficult.

Any help to get this working would be much appreciated.
