Video preview/thumbnail

hi,

i’m trying to build a little vj-ish patch just for fun/training and wanted at first a possibility to select a visual from several “previews”.

since it isn’t possible to spread a filestream and i also dont want all of them running because of performance issues it would be nice to have a preview with maybe the first frame or several frames changing.

any idea how this could be realized?
i’m looking forward to your advices.

You mean image preview of the video about every 300-500 frames or more?

use writer node to get an image of your video. this image may be generated on open of your patch .

you can use AviParser (EX9.Texture)
