Re: [-empyre-] interactive video software

That would work. Or couple two machines together, projecting only one.
incorporating live for that matter, I haven't had the need for jitter etc. since I'm working with the audience, pathing through the sememe. The random comes through the texting which is live and continuous as well as glitches when some videos are opened; there are almost always at least 2-3 on the screen and generally a lot more.

One could type tranparently - black on black - I think that would be a quick solution - periodically dropping the text in which just takes a second, running it that way - alan

dynebolic's good you can also drop things in PresentMovie on a Mac. When I do a live performance I'm just on Quicktimes; with 64 bits you can run at least 6 of them at a time. Computer, not video output. + text. Can you script quicktime to drop text into it live? - Alan

Hi Alan.

I don't know the answer to that last question of yours. I have wondered it myself in relation to online annotation of video (quicktime, flash, realMedia, anything that streams).

Recently I picked up an O'Reilly book called "Quicktime for Java" that I hope will give me a few clues. I may have to finally learn Java for real. Or maybe it is something more straightforward... dynamically changing an external xml file with perl??? (in which case you would need another small window interface in addition to the quicktime player)
