draw_piwels replacement for background drawing


I’m really lost here and can’t seem to get the logic of what I want to do.
It seems that in MAX6 the draw_piwels command to the jit.gl.render doesn’t function anymore.

It’ like to have a static gradient background that doesn’t move along when I move the/flip/rotate the camera of my scene.

I think thi scan be done by using jit.gl.nodes and jit.gl.camera to render the ‘in front’ objects and use a different jit.gl.node to render a static fixed position jit.gl.videoplane in the back

However, I simply can’t get it to work and have a few problems when trying, like textures not rendering and so on.

Any one can shed some light on this?

thx in advance

hello. to draw a background layer, simply use a jit.gl.videoplane @transform_reset 2.
you may also want to set @depth_enable 0, or set the @layer to some low negative value, causing it to draw first.

Thanx Robert,

so using nodes is not an option here?

i’m not sure why you think that. you can use jit.gl.node and jit.gl.videoplane together.
