How do I specify the file to be played, via OSC?

Post by MikeInOz »

I'm very new to Resolume and have installed Avenue. I'm trying out this software with a view to using my own app to use Avenue to play videos, communicating using OSC. I can successfully pass simple commands like '/composition/name ,s "My Test"' but I can't find out how to specify the full path name of a video file to play, and then to start playing it. What OSC command(s) do I need to send? Is there a guide that covers this type of info?

Loading files dynamically via OSC is not possible currently in Resolume.
You'd need to have your files placed in your decks already to be able to play them.
