Only For Pleasure


Only for Pleasure.
Note takes a moment or two to load. In Safari if after loading you get the QuickTime question mark, just hit refresh in the browser and the file should start to play. In Firefox file will play after loading. Not tested on IE.

ah! sam renseiw in a carriage caught in the act of voodling...
does not work for safari4; long loading in firefox, but working fine then ? seeems only the soundtrack is sliced.. or is it indeed the picture behind that has been sublty sliced and pasted? ingenious!

Thanks Sam it does (or should) work in Safari but you have to hit refresh when you get the QuickTime question mark - then it starts. Not ideal I guess. Its the relative file thing where it is a small file that is overlaid twice and loops to make a much bigger one. The picture is overlaid as well as the sound but the figure (Sam) keeps so still that aside from his cigarette it seems only the back projection is superimposed.

ok, it works on safari4.
(had to refresh twice before it worked, though...)
intrigued by the length: any reason for keeping the loop(s) that long ?

Philip Sanderson said...

OK glad it worked (finally). The length is determined by A: perversity and B: (more seriously) it takes that long for the loops to come back into sync. In other words if you have two loops with one just a little shorter then the other and start them together they will be in sync for the first play but then as they repeat they will gradually go out of sync and then eventually will line up again. In this case it takes a long time. The loop length itself was just determined by the voice over.
