What are you trying to achieve?: call stimuli from .csv in loop
What did you try to make it work?:
I have built almost this exact stimulus display function for a different project using PsychoPy 2 (for equipment compatibility reasons) so I wasn’t expecting any issues here but I am at a loss for what could be going on. I just need to present a series of trials in which an audio (.wav) and video (.mpeg) file are shown simultaneously. This works perfectly fine for a single trial if I call the .wav and .mpeg directly in their respective sound/movie builder components so I don’t think it has to do with the files or paths.
However, as soon as I add a loop and set the parameters accordingly in the sound and movie components, the experiment won’t run at all. I am able to enter a participant number and the blank grey background screen will load for a second or two but immediately quit. I’m not even getting any error messages, it’s as if the program has fully executed as normal.
I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the most recent version of PsychoPy 3 as well as fully updated my operating system but the problem persists.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated (especially since this was meant to be the first, and easiest step of building out a larger experiment)!
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
Occasionally I have gotten a message saying “PsychoPy has encountered an unhandled internal error” and prompting me to exit. This does not happen every time I try to run the program (the blank grey screen I described above is much more common) and occasionally it happens while I am working in the builder, not trying to run the program.
