Why do we need an initial bang ?


    Jul 26 2007 | 10:25 am
    Dear all,
    When I using "individual bang" method, therefore separate bang on GL objects and a "swap" message to jit.gl.render for display, I discover that I need an intial bang before any object can be displayed correctly.
    Any one know the reason behind ?

      remove swap and just bang render to draw. also if you want to use
      explicit timing make sure to add @automatic 0 to your actualy
      geometry, otherwise all those t b b bs arent doing what you think
      they are :)

      Hi vade,
      I think I get your point on how to make rendering in order success. However, my patch has no problem too, except I need an initial bang.
      Anyone who have a touch of the internal jitter implementation can tell if the bang will do something more than "draw" and "swap" ?
      You may notice that without the initial bang, the two videoplane don't even exist in the world~

      they do for me if you remove swap.
      the initial bang tells the renderer to uh, *RENDER*, otherwise your
      screen/window/render context when you launch the patch is empty,
      BECAUSE NOTHING HAS BEEN DRAWN
      :)
