play random clip on MIDI/OSC trigger

Post by yochee » Wed Apr 05, 2017 23:15

hello,

is there a way to trigger a random clip on a layer via OSC? Maybe something like

layer1/video/ random

or

must I adress layer1/video/ clip1 with solid color (black), clip duration of 1 (ms), and autopilot setting "random"?

cheers

That workaround with the 1ms solid is pretty smart.

Ideally, you would send /layer1/clipX/connect, where X is a random number.

Finally I stayed with the 1ms solution, as I was a bit too lazy to program a random number path in vvvv.
+ no necessity to set up a random number range limitation, as Resolume Auto Play only plays clips that are existent on the layer. Easy!
