Thanks for the thoughts.
So, I guess have to have something generating time, then start that from the top whenever I want to review what happens when you first start a program. That’s ok.
It’s really not so much about it being taxing on the computer or not, it’s about working preference; sometimes I would rather not manipulate a graph while something is rendering, if I’m not 100% sure about it not working…
xd_nitro’s suggestion seems to be an ok workaround, but the program is still running. Hmm.
Which brings up another question, is there an auto-crash save extension, to detect an application freeze and save the working file to a pre-determined location (desktop or whatever)?
The offline tools seem very centered around writing image sequence and then converting that to video. What would be interesting is to have an application that allows you to “drop in” a VVVV file, perhaps driven by a master file, and by setting fps, video codec, etc., it manipulates patch time to render straight to video. You could have options like brute force AA.
Is there a way to control window position by mouse or other keys?
Again, thanks for the time, and answers. I’m used to QC, running with heavy extensions/mods, and am trying to get more familiar with VVVV, because I’ve been curious about it for a long time.
