    Default Curious requirement - stop video every 5 seconds on demand

    Hi all, I have a strange requirement - for a research study on human facial expressions, I need a video player that, when I press one key or do a single mouse click, advance 5 seconds at normal playback speed through an AVI or similar video file, and then stops. When I click again, advance again 5 seconds more. How can I do that? would it be possible with Vegas, Premiere, Videodub scripting or something like that? thanks

    Doesn't windows media player stop and start when you hit the space bar. Yes it does if you have the start pause button selected. Is that good enough.

    As I read it, the OP wants it to stop automatically after 5 seconds. I'd imagine you could do this in a script with Vegas, but obviously you'd have to have Vegas Pro on the machine in which you are playing back, and you'd be playing back in the preview window.

    You could highlight the section and by pressing the LOOP button on the tape transport ribbon, it will play just those bits.

    Or if you press "0" (ZERO) on the number keypad it plays , normally 1 second but this can be changed in properties to 5 seconds
    (This is 1/2 second each side of cursor)
