Re: Randomize JPEG folder

Basically I have a jpeg folder with over 300 images in it - I just wanted to see what the result would look like if these images were played randomly

Maybe the screenshot above is confusing me :arrow: (Clipboard01.jpg) because obviously my latest MMV version looks slightly different :?

There will almost certainly be a performance hit (reduced fps, perhaps jitter too) for any way of capturing your visuals on same rig as is generating them. You will need to capture the sound too. That said, it may be possible with some game capture setup, but that's outside my experience. I use an ...

Great info here :) - exactly what I wanted to see modules react to my DAW audio.


Here's the question? - Is there a way to capture / record these MMvisuals in HD on the fly whilst they are reacting to my DAW audio? Or is it not possible?
