this is driving me nuts.
the main video post buffer is VPBUFFER_RGBA
this contains of course rgb in as floats and a possible alpha (not always)
my problem is , this is not really the final image.
so which buffer/image is sent up to the picture veiwer?
none of the available (multipass) channels provide access to the final image.
so, each plugin post effect is writing to its own rgba buffer locally right?
so , if my plugin does something to its local rbga buffer , another plugin will come along after it and overwrite what i just did? (seems to be this way)
the question is , how can i access this final image (after all effects), where is it.
it must be being built somewhere and passed as a bitmap to the picture viewer.
i can see it in the picture viewer (just a user area i geuss) how can i grab it?
I cant reconstruct it from any of the available buffers!!!
it seems impossible to get to the final image.
any ideas ?
