subtitles with GL ?…

January 25, 2006 | 8:23 pm

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.
