subtitles with GL ?...

    hi, jitter-list
    i'm a little ashamed to ask this question, cause the task sounds so simple:
    how can i put subtitles onto a movie with objects ? i tried with but it always gets overlayed by the movie rather than the other way round. sending bangs to the object before the movie receives it, doesn't help either.
    all i want is the textrendering stuff to be the topmost layer
    which leads me to the general questions: how is the order of layers in gl rendering defined ? if i send 2 to a object, which one is topmost. would it work with text as well ?
    sorry if this is all too obvious, but right now i'm stuck

      Use the gl objects with @automatic 0 and draw the video before the text2d by sending the draw messages in the appropriate order.
