    How to play several videos in sync?

    by tbilisi45 » Thu Mar 24, 2016 2:18 am

    So, I have a cube and I'm trying to map different video for each face - for that I created 4 different videos, all of them looped and with exactly the same length;

    now, how can I make them all start at the same time?

    Thanks

    Several Options,
    - Re-render the whole video as one.
    - Set a preset with those videos selected to the surface
    - Use 3rd party media manager
    - use midi mapped hardware to trigger them.

    cheers

    I guess this would be the quickest and easiest solution, thanks for your advice;
    And where do I find info on how to do that?

    Thanks again

    the Presets is the 3rd tab on the right, after"Surfaces" and "DMX fixtures" (the small lightbuld).
    When in the presets, click the + button to add a new preset

    Thanks for the replies;

    I might be dumb, but I'm trying to figure out presets and can't seem to find the way to make them play in sync :(

    Could you elaborate a bit? Or just point me to an article or tutorial, because I can't even find anything on youtube
