George_Toledo commented on lechbialek's Feature Request, “Play MIDI files (vuo.midi.play.file)

The reason I added ten votes for this last night, is that I think it would increase the usability of VUO as an offline rendering system immensely.

Jaymie, I was trying to figure out how to make a video of the midi based composition I sent you, and also capture audio at the same time. Or, how to render it offline and then join the audio to it. Basically...”how do I make a video of this with audio, whether offline or live capture”. The feature that creates movies from the Viewer, seems to not be able to be configured to capture audio.

I guess that with audio, there is the “play audio file” node...which I have not used yet with the offline render, but I am guessing works. With MIDI, I can’t think of any way to do this. In QC, Value Historian helped a lot by being able to be used for offline renders, after capturing this kind of data.

It is really hard to think of a workflow to use VUO to make videos of audio visualization or midi visualization. That doesn’t mean it can’t be done of course, it only means I haven’t figured it out.

If VUO could render offline while outputting values from a MIDI file, then a DAW linear editor could essentially be used as a linear editor for VUO values. That would be amazingly powerful.

Oh, I see, good explanation, Alastair. Thanks. Well, however it needs to be! I can imagine this becoming hard to implement, maybe especially depending on HOW it would be implemented.

Maybe implementing it as a type of editor performance mode could work around some difficulty in HOW to implement. Good luck VUO!

How about, just put it back as chosen.

Why does inability to implement for this release knock it off of chosen, after the overwhelming positive response...and it actually being chosen.

That has funny implications for the entire voting system.

Can’t it just still be “chosen”, and get pushed to the next release, or whichever one it is feasible to do it for?
