having trouble opening any file sent into second inlet of pix_mix, even if its the same file that I successfully open when put in the first inlet. if anyone can spot an error that I cant see in the patch itself would be greatly appreciated
File Not Opening with pix_mix on gem
@polychromacollective [auto $0( is wrong, but that doesn't matter because it sends "auto 0" as $0 is meaningless (without value).
Maybe the reset sequence at the end of play is being interrupted by a new triggering of [oneshot]
You should probably reset [onshot] last after all the parameters are reset for [pix_film]...... so the [clear( message should be connected to the leftmost outlet of the [t b b b b]
Not sure why it works for the left inlet of [pix_mix]...... maybe something to do with the different [threshold~] settings.
Another thought before bedtime...... is your knob sending between 0 and 1?
If it is 0-127 you will be stuck with just the left inlet unless you turn it completely "off".
the parameters are set to 0 and 1 and I am testing by manually triggering the videos so it is not a problem with the threshold settings although I plan to adjust those anyways when I have the video playback and [pix_mix] working. both videos work through the left inlet so its not a problem with the video files, but for some reason neither video works through the right inlet.
@polychromacollective Is your knob range from 0 to 1?...... well, 1 - 0 would be better..... more logical.
If that is not the problem then maybe upload the patch (without the videos).
Sorry... more questions....
Are the images the same size?
no i realized the videos are different dimensions so i have to go into premiere and adjust them. that will hopefully fix the problem.
