Yes, Connect the second outlet of [pix_film] to [unpack].
Then the first outlet of [unpack] will give you the total amount of frames
of the video you load.
So you can connect the first outlet of [unpack] to the last inlet of
[counter]. This will set the maximum value to reach for [counter].
I use [counter] to play each frame of the video and i send the scratch
values in its third inlet.

this is how i do it... but as Derek were suggesting there is the [mod]
object too.. Derek how do you use it?
just for curiosity...
thanks..

best
