Comparing two clip sequences

I have two sequences of clips, say /path/to/A/foo[0-9].mp4 and /path/to/B/foo[0-9].mp4. If I bring up either one of them as follows:

rv A

I can see all the 10 clips concatenated together as one single sequence.

I would now like to compare A and B side-by-side, or one on top of the other (to use the wipe function). I can’t figure out how to do this – I have tried many combinations of layers and sources, but the best I’ve been able to do is to overlay just one of the A clips on the corresponding B clip.

Any tips appreciated.

@Arun, you are probably looking at making a sequence of stacks (or a stack of sequences) to accomplish this. IIRC I don’t think that can be accomplished with the command-line syntax, but check out the rvsession.py that ships with RV and you can generate your own session files on the fly.

Thank you. Let me try that.

With stack mode, you can do this.

  1. Add A clip, as an “Add Source to Session”;
  2. Hotkey ‘x’ to open stack mode.
  3. Double-click " Default Sequence " on the left panel;
  4. If you wanna wipe, you can use “F6” hotkey, and Hotkey “F7” can display clip name.
    4.1 You can change the blend mode, on the left edit panel, with ‘add’ mode, or ‘difference’ mode.
