Isadora Movie Playback not running completely through
masterdd15 last edited by masterdd15
I previously had an issue with the Movie Playback on Isadora. This new issue involves the position of the video. I have created two HAP videos for my patch to use, one is 6 frames long, and another is 1 second long. I'm trying to create a seamless loop, but when running Isadora seems to stop at a position earlier than 100, even if the video is set to loop or play once.
I'm attaching some screenshots here. I'm not sure on my end what I'm doing incorrectly, or if there is a encoding issue I need to fix with the framrate of the video or Isadora. This is new footage that exists in the same external SSD as the isadora file, so I'm not believing this is a corrupt file issue.
If anyone has any suggestions, would b every thankful to hear any advice.
Stops at 83, rather than 100

Whenever I need a seamless loop for something that needs to go on for say, 10 minutes, I make a movie file that’s like 15 minutes long of the content seamlessly looping and play that.
If it needs to seamlessly loop with speed 1 forward playback for a 24-hour installation or something, I’ll make a 1-3 hour long file of the content seamlessly looping so that the imperfect loop point at the end of the video is basically imperceptible because it happens for less than a fraction of a second once every hour/every few hours.

@woland Thank you for the advice on the content. I really appreciate the perspective for longer form media, but I've been having repeted issues with Isadora not being able to play a footage all the way to position 100. Do you have any idea why this might be?

Unfortunately I don't know enough about the nuts and bolts under the hood of the playback engine to give you an answer about this.

It's not just for longer form media though. If I had your six-frame video and I wanted to loop it for 5 minutes, I'd make a 10-minute long movie file in editing software that's just those six frames over and over. If you never get to the end of the file because you make the file longer than the duration for which you need it to loop, you don't need to worry about anything to do with seamless looping nor what happens at the very end of the video file.
