Swapping still videos on movie player actor

  • Hello,

    I need to swap videos with movie position on 100 or 0 (stopped playback) and get the first or last frame of the incoming video outputted to proyector. 
    What I currently get after changing videos is a black image, until I launch it with a external trigger
     If I hover with the mouse on top of the connection between actors just after changing is RGB: 48x64
    I Run Isadora in a Win7 box,
    Any Ideas?   Thank you.

    I have a mac and I can always see the first or last frame even though I change the movie. So I am not sure if this works on a PC.
    I think a solution for you would be to trigger a low number into the position input if your position should be at zero or a high number near hundred if your position is at 100. Changing the position pushes a frame to the projector that should be seen.


  • thank you MIchel, thats extactly what I'm looking for. I'm going to slightly modificate it as the value of position could be near 0 or near 100. I'll use the data in the position output of movie player actor.

    Thanks again!
