One way to accomplish that would be using [textfile]s:

file no1. contains the file names of the textfiles that itself contains
the files for [pix_texture], sth like:

content of file1:


content of slow:



[read file1(
[read $1]


every time, the first [textfile] receives a bang, the next line is
selected, the right outlet of [pix_film] gives a bang when the movie is
finished, use that to bang the _2nd_ textfile, so that after
slow_movie1, slow_movie2 is used. Read the help patches as well.
