Hello there !
I have noticed a strange behavior with VL in vvvv beta 39 (x64).
Here are the packs I am using : AutomataUI, dx11, VVVV.Audio, vvvv-time and here is the one I want to use but which gives me troubles : mp.dx.
I have a vvvv patch which is using a VL patch to display a sensor monitoring in a renderer. VL patch was made using Template node in vvvv beta. So, the patch is using VL.Skia to display a monitoring, and use primitive elements such as Rectangle, Line, Text, Group, etc.
When only using AutomataUI, dx11 (from the Contribution Manager), VVVV.Audio (from the Contribution Manager) and vvvv-time, everything is working just fine. AutomataUI and vvvv-Time were added manually to the packs folder in vvvv installation folder.
For now, I need to use microdee’s mp.dx pack. So, I install VPM as instructed. Then I go to VPDB to get mp.dx vpack and install it automatically with VPM. No error messages, everything looks great, and I can see it in my packs folder with all the dependencies it requires. But, for now on, every VL.Skia nodes are having troubles, except Group and Group Spectral.
My previous vvvv patch now shows my VL node with a red border but with no error message when hovering it. When I open VL, all Skia nodes are red too, except the two group nodes. I cannot see any values from the input or output pins but just a black rectangle, and this also for all non-Skia nodes.
I tried to disable and enable VL.Skia in the dependencies but it does not work (and I do not have any error in my dependencies, no red ones or missing ones). Also tried to disable and enable all dependencies : same result. I also tried to create a new VL node from Template in my vvvv patch but the problem persists. Moreover, the only way I have found to go back before this problem is to completely uninstall and reinstall vvvv beta and all the packs.
