Device Overview

Name/Version: midi-vidi 1.1
Author: mapmap  
Description: Midi-Vidi allows you to control the playback of Quicktime videos with Midi inside of Ableton Live thanks to the magic of Max for Live. Midi-Vidi divides your video into 12 equal parts based on the length of your video and assigns those parts to Midi notes. There is also an effects section that allows you to map attributes such as velocity to some simple effects.

Midi-Vidi is based entirely on Cycling 74's Jitter tutorial #26 with only minor modifications by me. I can't take any credit for it's construction. I hope to use this as a jumping off point and make further modifications in the future to allow for more playability.
enjoy.

Midi-Vidi
max for live video effect

You can see an early test of this patch in action here?

Quick Start
-Drop Midi-Vidi into a midi track in Live
-You can now either route midi from an existing midi track to Midi-Vidi or play the track that it is already in. (it will pass midi thru unaffected so you can place an instrument in the track after if you want.)
-click the Load Video button to select your quicktime video.
-then click the Display Window button to open the player window.
-Start sending midi and watch your movie skip.

?next if you feel like it try playing with the matrix mixer to the right and see what happens.

Thank you! I have been hoping someone would post some Jitter work on here.

i just uploaded v1.1
changes are:
added offset slider for adjusting playback divisions (useful for creating variations)
fixed:
jpg image now loads correctly

great work, this is amazing!
is there an easy way to export video?

thanks.
i was just using a screen capture program to make those demo videos.
i'm working on a video recorder as well as a toggle for detecting external displays + going fullscreen.

Thanx for this great patch, i found how to record the vid?o with the Jitter tut files :)

When you asign a midi map to a audio clip, you can not to shoot video and audio at same time...the sound only works with video if it is a midi instrument...

It is supposed to trigger the audio from the video as well right? I can trigger the video but the audio won't play..Hmmm. Using ASIO4ALL with onboard sound card. Anyone know how to fix?

Never mind..no audio with ASIO4ALL, have to use onboard driver..

When the new version???

Really cool effect, thanks for sharing!

Can I record the screen to video mov?
