EMBEDDED VIDEO IN QUARTZ/RESOLUME

Post by digitalgigalow »

here is work around that might work. open you movie file in Quicktime Player 7 (if it is not on your computer, install from OS disk in optional installs). goto file tab and select Export. change save settings to 'Save as Image Sequence' then save. (save were you want to). This will create a folder with every frame as a picture (extension depends on the settings you selected in Quicktime).

now there are 2 ways to play this as a movie in quartz without messing with quicktime code.

1. follow this tutorial: Dynamic slideshow - follow link below

2. http://kineme.net/forum/Discussion/Tuto ... Structures

this patch plays multiple .PDF files like a flip book. there is one more process you need to do with the Image Sequence files to make this happen. go to the folder you saved them in. Highlight all the Images and open them in preview. this will bring up preview and all the images in ONE window with a thumbnail sidebar. highlight all the images in the thumbnail sidebar then print. instead of printing choose the pdf tab and save as PDF.

UREKA!

Although we still don't recommend it, if you really insist on playing back movies inside your .qtzs, it's a lot easier to install Vade's movieplayer: http://v002.info/?page_id=13

I've downloaded this but I can't figure out how to embed a movie with it. There's "movie source" in the plugin but that links to an external file. Am I missing something?

Did you read the readme.txt and install the plugin correctly?
