Can I scan file in visual plug-in ?

Post by Inframan »

I need to Scan the entire file to generate some specfic stats before I can draw my visualizations/info.

I note that Effect plug-ins can Scan the file.
If writting a File plug-in one could go through the file.
I do not see a similar functionality for Visual plug-ins.

Is this possible :?:

Visuals receive real-time audio only, so there is no way to scan the entire file. An effect plug-in would have to be used for scanning. You could show real-time data in the effect window during previewing.
