Please be gentle with my first post. Its a big ask!
I once used Director years ago at University and havnt touched it since then.
I now have a new project and feel director might be the way forward for me, but cant for the life of me figure out how to or even if Director can do what i need.
I need to create a presentation with video footage, that doesnt play the same twice.
As I said, the concept is that each time you watch it, you see something new.
So guys, please could you advise if this can be done, and if so, how so?
Create yourself a global list of video clips when your projector starts (prepareMovie). Every time you need to play a video, choose one at random from the list with something like:
-- how many videos remain in the global list nVideos = count(gVideoList) -- if there are any if nVideos then -- generate a random index in the list tIndex = random(nVideos) -- grab the value at this position video = gVideoList[tIndex] -- remove it so you won't see it again gVideoList.deleteAt(tIndex) else -- alert "No more videos available" end if
Thanks for the reply.
Using this process i guess it would be possible to have several lists set up.
ie. section one clips, section two clips and so on.
THanks again, I'll try this out mate.
