how to stop movies (not pause or go to first frame, i want the 'black' background)

edited September 2015 in Library Questions

i've tried a project that when the light sensor doesn't take any light, 3 movies files play with the if+mouseover. but i dont know how to stop movies, when the light sensor take some light over certain amount. i want the black screen. not the pausing or go to first frame.

how can i make this? below is the codes.

import processing.serial.*; import*; Movie dali, inner, moon;

Serial port; int sec = 1000; int start_time=0; float a;

void setup() {

port=new Serial(this, Serial.list()[2],9600);

size(1024, 768); background(0);

dali = new Movie(this, ""); dali.loop(); inner = new Movie(this, ""); inner.loop(); moon = new Movie(this, ""); moon.loop(); } void movieEvent(Movie m) {; }

void draw() {

int sensor =; if(sensor>200){ if(mouseX < width /3) { image(dali, 0, 0, width, height); } else if(mouseX < 2*width /3) { image(moon, 0, 0, width, height); } else { image(inner, 0, 0, width, height); }



one more, can i hide the mouse point?

i'm very new for processing. thank you for your reading.


  • If you want a black screen, then just put background(0); if your condition is true in draw() and else everything you have now. The mouse pointer may be hidden with noCursor();
