Looking for VST which loads images from a folder

Post by klaus.meier » Sun Aug 23, 2009 00:27

Hello,
I work with Avenue 3.
I am looking for a FreeFrame vst, which loads all images in a specified folder and shows them, like a slide show.
(Visualjockey has a Picture Manager for this)

Or is it possible to load pictures within Avenue (did not find anything)?

Any ideas?

Greetings - Klaus

FreeFrame and VST are completely different beasts. VST is developed by Steinberg and is a standard for Audio Effects/Instruments while FreeFrame is a standard for video effects (check FreeFrame.org).

But i'm afraid that a FreeFrameGL plugin for loading pictures does not exist yet.
Of course you can load pictures in Avenue (.png or .jpg) but loading multiple pictures in a single clip and played out as a sequence is not possible. We know there is popular demand for this as it is in version 2.x as well, so we'll have a look wether we can build this in again.

I have been looking for this feature.
Is it available? How?

Picture manager plugin is desired, can someone make it to work in resolume?
Sequential photos from a folder.

I want this feature so i dynamically load pictures via eyefi from my dslr still camera.

Thanks in advance

Are you on a Mac or PC?

Since Resolume can process Flash files you may have success with a swf working as a slideshow-/gallery object? I'm sure there are some examples on dedicated flash-ressource sites. HTH.

Anyone got a flash file I can try out.

How about a link to a flash file ready to go.
Found some flash gallery but too complex for me to setup.

Thanks.

Here's a post with the same question and the two ways of doing it (Flash and Quartz Composer): viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4061&start=10&hili ... %27#p25038

@fruitygreen

Another help could be offered by the free SWFTOOLS. One part of the package is jpeg2swf.exe which takes one or more JPEG pictures and generates a corresponding SWF slideshow. You could use it to prepare/update your presentations with dedicated flashfiles built from the directories or collections you want.

Thanks but not really what I need.

Feature I need is to load dynamically uploaded images in a folder to be loaded by a flash file. An array of different images .

If I need to generate a list of pictures manually then I might as well render an image sequence video.

What I am looking for is a way Resolume play or load images from a folder, in which these images are taken dynamically via eyefi.

Hope anyone can help. FYI I have a flash file that can load images via a list. What I am hoping is that someone can create an image array code that flash can recognize randomly named images.

Thanks again.
