Previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in October 2021


It is out!

This past month we're happy to have released vvvv gamma 2021.4, the latest and greatest (so far). It took us much longer than originally planned, but probably that wasn't much of a surprise to many of you. Still, we're trying to get better with our predictions. So for the freshly updated roadmap, we tried to be a bit more conservative for a start and rather update it along the way. But it should give you a perspective already for the coming year.

Also, we tried to improve the Features section on the website to hopefully give a better impression and overview of what makes vvvv.

Then apologies for silently skipping the last two regularly scheduled meetups, but we now have a date announced: On December 7th, 8pm CET baxtan the great will host The final meetup of 2021 where everyone is invited to join and show us what you're working on.

Who Sune Petersen aka sunep
When Mon, Nov 22nd 2021 - 10:00 until Thu, Nov 25th 2021 - 15:00
Where MPLab , Kūrmājas prospekts 13, Liepāja, Latvia

I am hosting a 4 day workshop on data visualization/sonification a the UPDATE festival in Liepāja Latvia.

In October 2018 I was diagnosed with Leukemia (B-ALL) han have been through treatment from that day it was diagnosed in 2018 until late April 2021 where I took the last Chemo pill. I an now cured and well again.

In Denmark you can access all your medical data and is automatically collected on the common "sundhedsplatform" that all citizens have access to, where they can see their own data.

Seeing as a Patient in this treatment, the quite often daily blood tests are very important. After a while I could see some possibilities in using these data, it became obvious when I looked at the graph view of several of the blood parameters, here you can see Heamoglobin.

Heamoglobin levels over time

The workshop will take a subset of my blood data as starting point to see how it can be visualized/Sonified or whatever. It is of course also possible to use you own data if you have some interesting phenomenon you would like to explore.

The festival takes place in the physical world as well as online, so everyone can join. There are also other workshops and seminars that you can attend.

update.mplab.lv/

Disclaimer, as I have had chemo-brain for the most part of the past 3 years, the workshop is based on vvvv beta, I simply haven't had the headspace to get into it yet. I will welcome it if you dive into gamma, then I will try to join in the best I can.

So,

we have a candidate for the upcoming 2021.4 release. It includes the latest updates for videoplayback and also a new thing called editor extensions, which are little tools to extend the vvvv editor. The best thing about them: Those are just patches as well, so it is really easy to make your own.

Next up: We're now fixing a few more buggers that showed up in the release candidate before we'll be releasing 2021.4 hopefully within this month. Then it's time to start planning the next releases and give you an update on the roadmap.

Also coming up: The November meetup on the 23rd!

Here are some new bits for you to try:

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...
