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.
