Writing volumetric texture to file (dds) fails

hi everybody,

i try to write a volumetric texture to a dds-file, but it fails.
TTY says:

lib\thirdparty\x64\dxerr9.dll library is not found. Description for 0x8876086C is not available. A call to an OS function failed

Tested with:
vvvv_45beta34.2_x86 + vvvv_45beta34.2_x64
AMD Radeon R9 200 HD 7900 + NVidia GTX 770

thanks for any hints,

VolumetricTextureDDSWriter.v4p (9.4 kB)

try a Renderer (Volume Dx11) with the proper texture format before writer

i’m afraid that regarding DX9 this seems to be a limitation of the underlying DX function: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb205433(v=vs.85).aspx which will fail as pointed out in the remarks if the texture is in pool default (which all vvvv textures are).

hi joreg, thanks for pointing out that!

i think furthermore the issue is probably also related to
