Here goes!

Available in experimental form since a while already, vvvv gamma finally will ship proper stable video playback options with upcoming 2021.4. So here is what we've got for you:

For both Skia and Stride - Something for everyone!

Video files

Typing "video" in the nodebrowser shows the VL.Video.MediaFoundation nuget. Reference it to get these nodes for video playback:

  • VideoPlayer (Stride): returns a texture for VL.Stride
  • VideoPlayer (Skia): returns an image for VL.Skia

Both play the same wide range of containers and formats and some more can be added by installing the Mediafoundation codec pack.

Image Sequences

For the playback of image sequences, find the following nodes shipping with the respective nugets:

  • ImagePlayer (Stride) and ImagePlayer (FrameBased Stride) for VL.Stride
  • ImagePlayer (Skia) and ImagePlayer (FrameBased Skia) for VL.Skia

Check their help patches for details on supported formats and some more fine-print.


For arguments regarding when to use the VideoPlayer vs. the ImagePlayers nodes, see the new chapter on video playback in the gray book.

Network synchronization

Yes, please! Using the ImagePlayer nodes, vvvv also offers to have them play in sync on multiple PCs.


Available for testing now in latest 2021.4 previews.

Aaaahoi!

The single biggest news this month: The FUSE team had their preview release party and people are since fusing aways like there's no tomorrow. Check it out, you don't want to be the last one who joins the hype! Any questions? Get them answered in the shiny new dedicated FUSE section of the forum.

In addition, we had two regular vvvv meetups which you should watch if you don't want to miss out on the latest shenanigans: meetup 13 and meetup 14.

And a secret tip: dottore giving an update on the status of the VL.Kairos project.

How are things regarding the upcoming 2021.4 release? Good, glad you ask! We've just recently merged the promised Settings UI, which is actually bigger news than what meets the eye. We'll have to talk about this separately... TextureFX have recently left the experimental stage and so have the Video- and TexturePlayers that still have an announcement pending. But really, latest 2021.4 previews already have all of this in for you to test. And still a few more things to come...

Ohyeah!

This time of the month again. First off, for your calenders:

Then, as the attentive among you have noticed, we've still not released the long announced 2021.4 release. Frankly, we've been derailed a bit by commercial inquiries that made us shift priorities. And also the VL.Fuse team has been quite annoying in requesting some needed ground-work in VL.Stride... Apart from the delayed release, this is all good for you, because it also means some more new goodies. So rest assured, no time is wasted!

Things you may have missed:

vvvv gamma

Today I'll be giving a presentation at SIGGRAPH online 90% talking about vvvv. If anyone is attending :)


Rendered vs. Real Time: A Deep Dive into the World of Real Time Graphics (Bassdrum) - Presented by Intel

Hear from Takuma, a Visual and Spatial Artist, to get a firsthand look at the exploration of the visual/spatial parameters through the artistic creation of immersive visual worlds through real time graphics. He utilizes top tools including Adobe Creative Suite, Blender, components of Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit, and more.

So where are we?

We have a new release: Update your vvvv beta projects and licenses, vvvv beta 42 is here, including VL 2021.3.3. This means a lot of fixes and improvements!

And then we're still sorting things for the upcoming vvvv gamma 2021.4 release. Besides massive work on new features for VL.Stride as mentioned previously, recently VL.Skia 2d rendering got its GPU backend fixed. This improved its rendering performance and also made the VL.Stride SkiaRenderer node work for AMD cards.

Nothing much else to report at this point other than that while we're quite delayed on our roadmap, things are looking good code-wise. Remeber that you can always follow our daily progress by testing the latest previews. And please don't forget to report issues you find in the forum!

Helo from the devvvvlabs!

If you look at our roadmap, you can see that we had 2021.4 planned for release in June. Now that didn't happen. Here is what happened instead: Guess what, some things took longer than anticipated. So let's recap the state of currently available 2021.4 previews. Besides numerous bug fixes, here is what you already get:

  • Speed improvements for working on larger projects are there, but still with some buggers
  • TextureFX are there but will see one more round of polishing
  • Spout nodes recently got a final polish
  • Some little goodies: Renderer ViewPorts, MeshSplit (Experimental), Pipet (Experimental), a non blocking BufferReadback, Custom material overrides, ShaderFX node factory, automatic ShaderFX input pins for all shader types
  • Reworked, convenient Buffer and Texture creation nodes have recently been added
  • Explicit Type Parameters have recently been added, see discussion
  • The This node can be used inside of Create, see discussion

Still in the works for the release: a UI for Settings, simple shader creation, Entity picking, a TexturePlayer. Other things like the planned NuGet update are currently on hold and may have to be moved to the next release.

As many of you do, you can always help by testing the latest previews and reporting issues in the forum!
