Player (DX11.Texture)

Credits: meso for sponsoring development of v.1 - Elias for the architecture of Player (EX9) - vux for dx11


first off: send massive thanks to meso for sponsoring the development and even more for making it public!

Player (DX11.Texture 2d)

what's the deal?

if the nodename alone doesn't ring a bell:

optimized playback of picture stacks

  1. asyncronously reads the file into RAM
  2. asyncronously decodes if necessary
  3. swaps the image to GPU and decodes if necessary

tried a direct port of Player (EX9.Texture) by Elias but failed due to reasons.

so what's the differences:

  • supports bmp, exif, gif, ico, jpg, png, tif; no tga
  • doesn't use WIC/SharpDX to decode but System.Drawing
  • doesn't parse the directory async
  • extra debug output decoding time
  • gpu swapping is completely different and vux will probably laugh about that part of the code...
  • not tested with multiple graphicscards
although it has been successfully used in realworld projects, there might be hickups... coding had to be done rather quick

Hi, isn't this node spreadable like the EX9 one from Elias?

woei 14/06/2016 - 21:55

@Lrinke it does, when you use it with dx version of beta33.7 as mentioned in the notes.
there was a change in the dx11 render pipeline after that version which didn't find its way into this contribution (yet)

Lrinke 14/06/2016 - 22:09

Ah ok thanks woei :D

Hi! thanks a lot, just how to use it? where should i unpack this .dll? (first-timer question)

could this somehow end up in the DX11 pack by default, it would be a lot more convenient than tracking it down every time it is needed

and does it even work in beta35.2?

u7angel: @xxxlalala i meant matcap, look for that

xxxlalala: thanks @u7angel superphong is exactly what i was looking for. litsphere gave me no search results though :(

u7angel: i guess most pro vvvv users don't use emeshe for various reasons but more custom collection of shaders. see superphong or litsphere
