In my experience with things like this, there is the issue of having
video able to play back fast enough.
The solution usually means that the different clips have to be cached
so that they come up on demand.
Max/MSP with Jitter might be something to look at. Its designed for
custom applications and built around audio and midi interfaces. The
Jitter addon is made to random access control of video at the frame
There is also Puredata which is an opensource version, and therefore a
little cheaper. :)
hope this helps,

i'm currently working on a theatre project where I need to trigger
short film clips at random times.
We want the films and the atmos sound in between the films to be
able to be
midi triggered with the keyboard, ie to play the 'chase' sequence,
'a' and the chase sequence is cued to be played.
I'm working with Final Cut Pro to edit these sequences, and the
audio guy is
working with Logic. We want to work in surround sound, which is why
like to trigger it with Final Cut, however from my understanding you
midi trigger different parts of a sequence with different keys on the
keyboard. (let me know if you can, that'd be great!!)
Does anyone know of a software where you can midi trigger the film
sound with different keys? (rather than goto next marker, goto next
... and so on until you get to the bit you want to cue.) I usually
visuals in modul8, however this doesn't work with sound)
The film is going out through s-video to a dlp projector, and the
going through a firewire410 soundcard.
Any help is more than welcome.
