the idea came up to create a thread in the forum concerning all the questions related to the submission for writtenimages.net (which is in a couple of days)
the thing is, the submitted patch has to start up by executing a command in the commandline-interface. once the patch is running, it has to save a png-picture (4080x2720) in a path, that is also defined in the commandline-interface (actually at the same time when the patch is executed)
as tonfilm pointed out, the args (vvvv)-node is required.
what i did:
- i wrote in the “args.txt” file the following command:
2.i write in the commandlineinterface:
“c:\the_path_where_vvvv_40beta23_is\vvvv.exe” /writeimage c:\the_path_where_to_save_the_png\the_filename.png
thats basically it. the command /writeimage is defined in the args-node in the patch.
the idea is to submit the whole vvvv program in a zip, with the patch,the args file and so on.
the remaining question for me is, whether the vvvv.exe has to close automatically after it safed the png.
