Outputs the video frames and audio samples of a movie in sequence.
If you drag a movie file from your computer onto the composition, an instance of this node will be created with the
URL port set up.
When the composition starts or this node is added to a running composition, the movie is paused at
Set Time seconds from the beginning. It starts playing when the
Play input port receives an event.
URL— The movie to play. When this port receives an event, the movie is loaded (or reloaded, if
URLhas not changed), and the playhead goes to the time specified by the
Set Timeinput port. If the movie was playing, it continues playing. If it was paused, it stays paused. See vuo.url for info on how Vuo handles URLs.
Play— When this port receives an event, the movie starts playing from the current playhead time. If it was already playing, it continues.
Pause— When this port receives an event, the movie stops playing and keeps the playhead at the current time.
Loop— What to do when the movie reaches the end.
Playback Rate— The speed at which the movie plays. At 1, it plays at normal speed. At 2, it plays at double speed. At 0, the movie is paused. At -1, it plays backwards at normal speed if the movie has frames before the current playhead time (try enabling
Set Timeto the movie’s duration in seconds).
Set Time— The time in the movie where the playhead should start, in seconds. When this port receives an event, the playhead goes to that time and fires a
Decoded Videoevent. If the movie was playing, it continues playing. If it was paused, it stays paused. (If
Set Timereceives an event but
Decoded Videodoesn’t fire, consider setting the
Decoded Videoport’s event throttling mode to Enqueue Events.)
Optimization– How video playback should be optimized for best performance, based on the order in which video frames will be played.
Loopwhen the composition starts (or when this port’s value changes to “Auto”).
Playback Rateis -1 or
Decoded Video— Fires an event whenever it’s time to display the next frame in the movie, which is outputted along with the event.
Decoded Audio— Fires an event whenever it’s time to play the next audio samples in the movie, which are outputted along with the event.
Decoded Audio port only fires events when the movie is playing forward at normal speed. When the
Playback Rate is not 1, or when the
Loop is “Mirror” and the movie is playing in reverse, the
Decoded Audio port does not fire events.
