set clip start in a looped clip?

Post by prebentious » Sun Apr 01, 2012 9:29 pm

I have a question for y'all, and would really appreciate any tips.
I'm trying to move the clip start locater in a looped clip, but it's trickier than I thought.
The loop_start property of the clip will set the clip start position if the clip in unlooped, but not if it's looped.
I tried turning looping off, moving the start point, then turning looping back on, and then setting the loop points, and that works fine if the clip isn't playing, but turning loop off will often stop a playing clip.

Does anyone have any other ideas for setting clip start in a looping clip?

Not something that i believe can be done as youve discovered....

The two things are linked (they should be separate but hey we havent seen a max4live update for a long time)

maybe you can mess around with the playing pos to prevent the short loop off moment to happen when the playing pos is near the end point. just a thought.
