next days i want to build together with a friend a special video mixer for triggering short videoclips by sound.
it will be a part of his study work. according to moods in music he will design a library of short clips using flash/afterEffects/etc. the length in general will be below one second, so the files are very small. my beatdetector module should trigger 3 or 4 of the clips (-> mixer channels) at a time. the user interface will be a midi controller.
how should the clips be stored ? codec or uncompressed (200-500 kb i think)?
very small files (compressed at 100kb) are easy to load and preview, but need performance for decompression. so what’s the best average ? which codec is fast ?
is uncompressed the fastest ?
thanks for any related idea …
