SpoutMay 19, 2016
This is to announce proper Spout support for vvvv (finally).
What the Spout?
Spout is a realtime video sharing framework for windows. Basically what Syphon is for OSX. It allows different applications that handle video (or textures) to share them. That includes TouchDesigner, Resolume, AfterEffects,… to name only a few. For a full list see the Spout website.
How to Spout?
While you’ve already been able to use Spout so far, it was a bit of a hassle to set it up. Now vvvv ships with two simple nodes which should be all you ever need:
- Spout (EX9.Texture Sender)
- Spout (EX9.Texture Receiver) Both modules are also available as DX11 versionsbeta-contribution.
Internally the sender module uses the new SpoutSender (System) node to register a sender name with Spout. If you’re interested in a list of all available senders on your system, use SpoutSenderNames (System).
Can I has Network?
Available in latest alphas now. Many thanks to the creators of Spout and TCPSpout! Please test and report your findings.
