Add "Start" trigger for JpegFolder

Thu Dec 02, 2021 9:46 pm

[So my findings here viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2731#p11774 won't get lost.]

Abusing the "Reload" trigger to restart the images with image 1 works, but who knows if this is still supported/possible in future versions of Magic.

A dedicated trigger to start with image 1 would be great 8-)

There are already two existing solutions for this:

1) Use the Restart module, which has a param you can trigger to restart any modules connected to its input(s). This is very efficient in your case, because it serves only to reset the Play index to 0.

2) Instead of separate images in the JpegFolder module, use a video file with the VideoFile module. Then you can trigger the Goto Start param, which you can use to rewind the video.

Goto Start for VideoFiles I knew already, but a video is not an option in my case here.

But, the Restart module is exactly what I need, thanks a lot for this information!
