Know your Spreads!

March 25, 2015 posted by: joreg

Finally, about 13 years late, we hand to you an extensive documentation about one of vvvv’s most unique strengths: Spreads. We completely reworked the documentation on the topic and enhanced it with a lot of grayful images like this one:

One of the many spread operations now visualized: the Zip

It may seem a lot to digest at first, but take your time and use it as a reference whenever you’re looking for an answer regarding a spreading topic. Specifically the listing of the most important Spread Operations should come in handy for beginners to understand and give them an overview of what spreads are typically used for.


You may note that for a start we have left out more complex spreading scenarios. Still, if one gets a good understanding of those basics all further dimensions should be much easier to grasp. Feedback welcome.
