Vst gui window inside a max window?

February 15, 2012 | 3:53 am

The patch I am creating runs in fullscreen mode, which is working great, but evidently this mode doesn’t allow any window to popup in front of it. Makes sense, I guess.

But I’d like to be able to see the guis for vsts without having to take the interface out of fullscreen mode first.

Is there any way to embed the vst gui inside a patcher window–i.e. not as a seperate floating window. This was possible in my last software (Usine.)

Thanks for any tips.

no, but this is something that would be a great feature IMO. Too many floating windows can be really annoying, especially in a performance

I face the same problem and would like to see this too! Please add it to the wish list.

I’m surprised–since the vst can be queried for its gui size…. what else would you use that information for?
