I´m producing a film which is made by randomisation, for the presentation I´m looking for a way to randomize the movie again, is there a way in vvvv to do this? I mean selecting/showing some parts of a movie by inserting a list of numbers??
there is a seek and a doseek pin. all yopu have to do is to create an array ( IO value advanced with the number of Coll row you want) with the desired seeking point and make a Random vqlue node > map teh value to the range you need > Get slice
this coupled with Change node that will send DoSeek when a change is done.
What I meaned was, you set the Random node to 10 slices, but it should be set to 9 slices. 10 will work too, but in the long run 0 is getting selected more than the rest (because slice 10 = slice 0 when you have 10 slices).
The attached RandomTimer Patch should do what you almost did ;)
I added the Change node to automatically “do seek” when the seek value changed and 10 times shorter periods - made a very interesting effect… :)
This way one can very easily make music (&video at the same time) in that glitch style.
Later, I made a patch to round time periods to some tempo. For example x * 1/4, x * 1/2, x * 3/4, x * 1/1, where 1/(x * 1/4) is beats per minute that we want to achieve. The only problem is that you don’t get any “regular” repetition, simply randomness, mathematically beautiful randomness…
Even later, I quantized the seek times: Multiplied the “BasePeriod” by 1, 2, 4, 8…
Look in the patch to see the effect.
Does anyone have an idea (or wants to take a shot at it) how to keep some of the randomness and have some regular repetition? For example, on every second beat there should be the same seek time…
just select in filestream node the avi file you wantto use with the patch. be aware that it should be quite long if you want to test completely the patch. output of random values is giving thousands of seconds as a do seek position.
if this patch doesn t work for u, does a new simple patch with filestream -> videotexture -> quad -> renderer dx9 works ?
I give up, it doesn´t work. Anybody interested in earning some money by creating such a patch for my movie, it will be played at the diagonale in Graz. Best would be if you are from Graz, but I also could host you. But thanx to all creating this real cool patch.
