Rendering/running with OF window minimized?


#1

I made a quick and dirty canon DSLR into syphon app with kyle’s ofxEDSDK and ofxSyphon ( grab it here: http://blairneal.com/blog/canon2syphon-v1-0/ …source coming soon), but some users might find it more useful to just minimize the app when they are just using the stream in other applications.

Is there a way to modify the OF render loop so that it still renders the textures if the app’s window isn’t being drawn? I know that isn’t a limitation of Syphon because other apps seem fine with it/bangnoise mentioned it shouldn’t be a limitation.


#2

ever find a solution for this?

Assuming you use GLFW:

You have to inherit of modify ofAppGLFWWindow, the line you want is:

glfwWindowHint(GLFW_VISIBLE, 0);
