So, this isn’t directly an Urho question, but since I’m trying to figure out of I should use Urho for this project, it’s kind of related…anyway…
Here’s what I need to do:
- Have a fullscreen app doing something like uv painting a 3d model (I know how to do this, no issues here)
- Write the painted 3d model’s texture to a file or append it to a video (appending it as a video is a little tricky)
- Say all this is happening on a laptop. I want to be able to plug in an HDMI or DVI cable and have ONLY the texture video come through as a live feed.
In other words, normally if I plugged in a HDMI cable and connected it to, say, a projector, the whole desktop screen would come through. How can I stream just the texture part? How can I say: "only this video/texture/frame buffer should be output through the hdmi cable? Tricky right?
I would not be surprised if it’s not possible. In fact, my plan B is to create a little webpage/js script that reloads the texture on disk every time I write it. Then, via localhost or whatever, someone else can see it. No cords necessary. HOWEVER, it would be “nicer” if I could do the HDMI/DVI thing.
