Dds Image sequence - just black

Hi, Im new to vvvv.

I have a patch running with

Player (EX9.Texture Timebased)

It works fine using a jpeg sequence But I want an alpha channel sequence- from what I can gather dds is the only way to do this in VVVV.

So I created a dds Image sequence with this tool - dds-converter

I can see the dds files fine in windows

But when I select the dds Directory the Render screen is just black.

Am I missing something?

I think there is a bug in that patch as it always runs negative numbers with dds

but if I just use The basic Player and control it manually its fine


you can also use png

Most stupid question: did you change Filemask to find your dds files? Note that default value is *.jpg.

Yes, graphics.

DDS loads extremely fast because there is no CPU decompression required, PNG has smaller file size on disc and lossless image quality but can be rather slow to load.
