By alternating and pausing one renderer each mainloop cycle and drawing to a black and a white BG, we can generate an alpha mask easily for a perfect composite of Flash with gradients and glows on top of any v4 layer. Add in a two-way Socket Proxy and we have full communication between the two worlds with mouse translation!
Achieved 60 FPS with Flash and a 60 FPS encoded WMV on a Quad Core.
it is a fantastic idea, i’m trying to do that, and i think i followed well the instruction for the vvvv part, but for the shader i have some problems. can you post some source code, for example the .fx?
big thx, and great workaround ;)
I’m playing with flash in vvvv.
Transparent would be great but for now I’m just exploring the posibilities. I know about the flash renderer but I can’t seem to find the flash(ex9) plugin you mention.
Can someone tell me where to find this plugin?
the Flash (EX9) node is supposed to come with the addonpack, but we failed to include it in …beta23_01 pack. we’ll try to fix all troubles that people discover with an upcomming …beta23_02 pack.
Flash (EX9) is fixed, it has now a Keyboard input to write characters in a flash file and it supports transparency. the transparency support costs a bit of performance even when the flash has no transparency, please report if its usable like this…
