Currently, VuoCompositionLoader's windows don't respond to ⌘W. I'd like to be able to close individual windows (without quitting the VuoCompositionLoader app), and to be able to programmatically show/hide windows.

Steve (@smokris), ok, yes, but I thought if I can disable whatever a node, I could disable a "render layers in window" node too and that disabling it would have make the window disappear.

Yes of course not so sophisticated as the make window closeable thing :)

But hey, Smokris, I believe in you man, when you tell me the sky is red, then I say it's red man :) No kidding but yeah sometimes I don't know the background, the possibilities and the limit of what is possible to code or not :)
