Milkdrop v3.0.0.0 Beta Released

Post by SBDJ »

So, the time has finally come.

I'm going to release a *very* early beta of Milkdrop for VDJ Windows x64.

A couple of caveats:
  • If you want to change the resolution you will have to restart the plugin completely. Easiest way is to quickly turn video off and on again. I will fix it in the future :)
  • Some presets render blank; looking into this
  • Some presets flicker; looking into this too
On the plus side, compared to the older Milkdrop plugins I released it should have much less impact on VDJ!

Let me know what you think.

Good to see some movement, not going to get into bugs & such until after NY. I'd suggest a 4th setting on the dial "no change"
just so other scripts can deal with pressing the cut/fade [I'd be doing something like monitoring deck master beat_bar 8 < 0.01 ? change, smarter than that but not much smarter]

wishing, you, the missus & the nipper a convivial Christmas.

Hi, and thanks
Working like a charm in decks (sd hd fhd, 4k not tested)
seems lighter 32bit version
Many presets do not render in master (as said so that looks "normal") but some same presets display in deck
Some presets do not displaying correctly (image not align vertically, top/bottom border appearing in the image)
Hangs / crashes when used as V-Source

i used old system to test (i5-2400S CPU @ 2.50GHz + nVidia 525M) & VDJ b6235

Made some progress tonight, found a preset that wouldn't render at all in the deck or master output and managed to get it displaying. Hopefully I'll issue an updated beta soon :)

Hi everyone.

Thanks for sorting out the email issue Scott.

What I'm getting on my system (seems to happen regardless of preset) is a black randomly flashing 'grid', checkerboard or mesh looking thing across the lower half of the screen.

Test version attached. It works slightly differently to the last beta, to work around an issue with multiple instances of the plugin. If selected in more than one slot, the old version would cause crashes/issues. This one shouldn't.

Like I say, it works completely differently, so there will be some other issues to iron out, but feel free to give it a try. Note the plugin doesn't have any parameters at present; this is because the plugin portion of the code was written from scratch and I haven't added it all back in yet.

New beta attached, let me know if you see any difference from v3.0.0.1 at all. I know some presets still render blank, I'll be looking into that. I'm wondering if there is so much flicker or checkerboarding.
