thanks again midi thief! I as well rehashed this idea after I say that COGE video (that's how I knew to use the movie importer as opposed to the image importer) and this one with Resolume and Quartz working very nicely together (http://vimeo.com/11047601
So basically I have the above quartz file working great in quartz, I can use the keyboard or Midi Notes Receiver to change between gifs (not sure if im going to keep that image resizer in there or not). I think I just forgot how to use syphon going from a quartz file to modul8. Do I need 2 quartz files? one controlling the gifs with a syphon server and another quartz file receiving the syphon signal (which is then loaded into modul8)?
I have QC Rehab and syphon.plugin installed and I thought all i needed to do was add a syphon server at the end of the chain instead of the billboard and drop that file into m8 but that's not working. do you have any ideas on or suggestions on what i might be doing incorrectly?
