how to get 2 [jit.gl.videoplanes] and 1 [jit.gl.text2d] into

    the great, great Vades' [Syphon_Recorder] that is the fastest capturer ever written to record video and synced sound into a QT file ...
    I know that I have to get the [jit.gl.text2d] to a texture, slab or videoplane to go into [jit.gl.node] but obviously too short minded to find out how to do this ...
    any helping hands & brains out there? would be lovely.

      hey, it seems capturing the text2d with [jit.gl.node] and not using the drawto attribute give some, er, results ?... at least it's transmitted form syphon server to client apparently.

      Thanks for watching me VICHUG, but what you say was not the cause of the defunction.
      But as today is saturday and I have neither a car to wash and nor a garden to tidy up (as my father used to during the golden weekends of the year '74); I therefore had a couple of hour for diving into the marvels of |@name xxx| and |@capture xxx|, two curious guys that live in openGL land and that I met for the first time this afternoon ...
      So for the record: this is how you get a [jit.gl.text2d] travelling safe through a Syphon tube:
      - make a [jit.gl.texture] name it according with your render context, use the '@name' attribute to give it a particular name, e.g. 'xxx' - the the [jit.gl.text2d] object reference to the texture calling its name with the '@capture' attribute and drive its output into a [jit.gl.videoplane] that is named accordingly to you render context.
      you can than gather the last via [jit.gl.node] into your jit.gl-composition and use that outlet to go into the [jit.gl.syphonserver]
      :-)

      Overlaying text on video was something I was trying to figure out. Thanks for this.
      A question I have is, if I want to make the jit.window fullscreen, how do I make the text scale to how it looked on the small jit.window? My purpose is for watermarking the video.
      Thank you for your time.
