I feel like this has been brought up before, but I’ve never gotten a decent answer, other than “don’t bother”.
Does anyone have any ideas of how to get good quick access scrubbing (back and forth) of a photo jpeg movie (or other better codec for that matter). I feel like the intrinsic problem is that the movie player only looks ahead, not behind… So even when I set the playback speed to be -1, its pre-reading the frames ahead, not behind, is this true? I’ve never seen very smooth reverse playback out of touch.
Anyways, thinking about trying to implement some scrubbing tools for vjing, and just wanted to put the question out there.
