Good evening all;
Last weekend I found myself in a situation where I could use Vvvv for some basic VJing. The main VJ’s version of Resolume crashed constantly so I thought I would try something myself.
I’ve never ever done VJing before but I thought I could try and slap something together in V4.
Initially I thought about using the V4 objects I already know to try and make something on the fly; but sadly my V4 knowledge is nowhere near good enough to create on the fly visuals that look any good.
So anyway I took all of the VJs video clips and I tried to make a very basic VJ mixer in v4, 2 videos playing; change the alpha to fade the two in and out.
I used FileStream & VideoTexture onto a quad. The issues I found were that the video would not loop at all, even though the “Loop” input on the Filestream is set to 1.
I also had issues that when opening a video, everything would stop and freeze until the new video had loaded in. Obviously not amazing for a smooth transition.
Is there any way around the two issues I faced? If only I could get the videos to loop, and not glitch out when loading another clip, it would have all been fine.
Many thanks :)
