A microcosm of Mandurah on Paul Bourke’s Hydrodome

In the city of Mandurah on the west coast of Australia, with its beaches, estuaries, wetlands, and canals, you’re never far from the sights and sounds of water. Paul Bourke recently used Vuo to convey the familiar sights and sounds in an entirely new way: a fulldome installation called the Hydrodome that “focuses on our community’s connection to our waterways from Mandurah’s ancient Bindjareb heritage to 21st century recreation.”

What does "Support the option to use either faceted normals or smoothed normals" refer to?

Faceted is when you can see the triangles, smoothed is when their edges are smoothed over.

I'm wondering if there is a way to address (from a node other than Share Value) specialized ports on nodes such as the Feedback Blend Mode port on the Blend Image with Feedback node or the Smoothing port on the Filter and Smooth Controller Midi node?

You mentioned that you found a solution based on the Show Instant Replay example. Cool.

For reference of anyone else who lands here looking for how to do the same thing, here's one solution:

If the popover says it hasn't dropped any events, then Vuo is submitting all movie frames to the macOS window server to be displayed. This doesn't 100% guarantee that macOS won't drop frames (that's out of Vuo's control), but it's a pretty good indication that your system is keeping up with the movie framerate.

With a simple composition, just Play Movie -> your shader -> Render Image to Window, the port popover would be a good measure of the effect of output resolution on your shader.
