Trying to get a SWF with some AS3 buttons into VVVV on a transparent background. I realise there are lots of threads on this and lots of info.
However - I wondered if someone could give me a quick definitive rundown on the best way to do it and what versions to go with. I’ve had a really frustrating few hours being pulled in different directions by loads of old threads and had no success. I may be of course just being stupid…
My 2 main stumbling points are:
- Is it right that the flash renderer does not support transparency (as per ((renderer (flash))))) Also - what versions of Flash activeX are most reliable to use with this node, particularly for passing variables. Do I still need to uninstall the latest version of flash to make it work?!
2)If I run an HTML page with flash content using the HTML texturer node - is there a specific version of the flash plugin I need to have? I keep getting plugin not found see attached patch.

make sure you actually have Flash installed. If you normally use Chrome, that comes bundled with a Flash version, so you don’t have Flash installed system-wide. Go to the flash player download page using another browser (e.g. firefox) and install it.
For ref this is the link to the latest offline flash player installers:
With Windows 8 - I couldn’t seem to upgrade via a browser so I had to go offline.
Just to go back to 1) in my original question - I’ll carry on trying to make the Flash Renderer work with some AS3 vars and using a shader to do the transparency as discussed here: https://discourse.vvvv.org/
If someone could point me towards a shader that will do the job that would be even better. I’ll post back here if I get a solution working. Cheers.
