rendering by unc
this is the first beta28 addonpack.
it comes with a bunch of new stuff by unc regarding realtime cubemapping, ie modules for conversions between different formats. and lecloneur spent you all a humble bundle of 30 TextureFX modules. just type his name into the NodeBrowser to see the list.
remember: everything thats in the addonpack (and more) is open-source: https://github.com/vvvv/vvvv-sdk
Small question, is one supposed to replace the normal lib/nodes/nodelist.xml with the addonpack's or not? Should the two be even concatenated?
Judging from the content (each file listing only its packages' nodes) obviously they are supposed to be concatenated. Do I have to do that manually or is there some way of installation that I am missing?
The page about-the-addonpack speaks of overwriting any file when asked, but that causes several standard nodes not to be found ( Camera (Transform Softimage) is an example) unless "Opened in Patch".
after extracting the addonpack your directory structure should look like this:
vvvv_beta28 vvvv_beta28/lib vvvv_beta28/lib/nodes vvvv_beta28/lib/nodes/nodelist.xml vvvv_beta28/addonpack vvvv_beta28/addonpack/lib vvvv_beta28/addonpack/lib/nodes vvvv_beta28/addonpack/lib/nodes/nodelist.xml
Aaah. Okay thanks, didn't see it like that.
The addonpack folder in the addonpack zip having similar content to the lib folder leaves room for confusion, I will edit the addonpack installation page in the near future - if that's okay - as soon as I think of a way to clear up this possible misunderstanding in a way that is similarly concise as the current installation sentence.
Ah, I'd done this wrong too. Thanks for clearing it up!
I will use this opportunity again to suggest a quest for finding a more intuitive way of installing the addonpack. My estimate is that even when I show exactly how it is done, 25% of the students gets it wrong.
Couldn't we either have a "download and extract suitable addonpack" function in crack.exe or alternatively a little utility that did it that was in the vvvv folder?
I have heard that it has something to do with licenses that it is the way it is, but it would remove quite a lot of frustrations among beginners if it was made easier/more intuitive to install the addonpack correctly
