The Studio-4 appears not to work properly as a two-port interface. I
tried this years ago and it was just broken. The Studio-5 may be
better, for what it's worth.

        I have a question about memory management and Quicktime movies.  I
developed an interactive piece with one of my students using imovie and
eight Quicktime clips.  The piece had four Quicktime movies running
simultaneously that could be interrupted by a sensor at any time.  The
patcher containing the movies was projected on a table top and foot
switches were placed in front of each video clip.  If a viewer stepped on
the sensor in front of any of the clips it would change to another clip.
Once the viewer stepped off the foot switch it would return to the original
clip.
        I used "dispose" to remove the original clip and "read" and "start"
to
pull in the new clip.  When the viewer stepped off the foot switch I would
dispose the clip and read in the original clip.  We noticed that over time
the movies would slow down and the interaction would be less responsive or
not responsive at all.  The movies that ran when no one interacted would
take longer periods of time to reload.  Also, after the piece had run for
some time if the viewer stepped off the foot switch it would continue to
play the movie that was called up by the interaction instead of ending it
and returning to the original clip.  I used a number of delays to insure
that movies were not colliding when loading.
        Does "dispose" really remove the movie from memory?  Any suggestions
how
interrupting and switching between movies in "imovie" should be handled?
It would be great if I could just load all the movies at the start of the
program and stop and hide the movies based on the interaction.  But it
seems that imovie does not "hide" stopped movies.
        Also, I would like information on live video grabs using Max.  Is
there an
object available that does this?

Thanks,
Elliot Anderson
