vvvvorums

The forum is the place for asking questions and sharing ideas. All vvvv developers are regularily reading the forum so you're very likely to get an answer soon.

Although we encourage you to register, you can post to the forum by loging in as "guest" with password "guest".

IRC

There is a ##vvvv channel on freenode.net where usually some users and developers are present to answer your questions. Read HowTo Use IRC if you don't know how to join the chat.

Skype

Many users do use Skype for chatting with each other. Message the users listed here to ask them for their Skypenames.

Shoutbox

To get some short time attention of the community (resulting in fast answers) place a SOS signal into the shoutbox.

Screenshots of the Day

You can post a screenshot on the blog directly out of vvvv by selecting a window and pressing CRTL+3.
Pressing CTRL+3 works with any vvvv-window. So make sure to have the renderer selected when you want to show us your results and not your patches.

Galería

In the Galería blog everyone can post entries to present her or his new work using vvvv.

If you want to write more about a project, create a page in the wiki and include a link in your blog post. You may also like to link to your external pages.

Help from within vvvv

Herr Inpektor

CTRL+I opens an Inspektor window. Selecting a node with an inspektor open you'll see a short description what this node is intended to do.

Helppatches

Pressing F1 with a node selected opens a helppatch explaining the node in some detail. If you press F1 with no node selected, a generic help patch is shown.

Also see the video tutorial on Helppatches.

Node Reference

vvvv brings up a page from the Node Reference, when pressing Alt-F1 with a node selected. a nodereference page exists for every native node and nodes that come with the addonpack. the pages are user-editable and thus can contain additional information concerning that node provided by other users.

Chat

The Fanclub (Ctrl+F1) option in the main menu will open a patch with an irc-chat on the channel ##vvvv on freenode.net. If the patch doesn't work for you read HowTo Use IRC for other ways of joining the chat.

The Girlpower directory

These demo patches try to explain several (sometimes advanced) topics. However they are good to see how some nodes can be used together in an elegant way.
