Winamp Forums > AVS Converting AVS to Milkdrop

I decided to go back and convert my "Why does avs keep changing" preset over to milkdrop, or atleast the scope. I'm having some trouble and I though you guys might know. Since MD dosen't use D & R I have to convert them, but I don't know how. http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....67#post1030067 I posted it in the MD forums if anyone wants to help.

 25th July 2003, 23:30 #8 UnConeD Whacked Moderator     Join Date: Jun 2001 Posts: 2,104 Now that Milkdrop has custom waves, are there any plans for taking Milkdrop preset customization to the same level as AVS? I have to admit I haven't tried the latest version (geisswerks only has 1.03), but I assume Milkdrop is still stuck in the same Movement + Drawing + Color Adjustments loop, rather than providing freeform stacking... Oh Atero, I have this lovely image for you:
 26th July 2003, 10:13 #9 Rovastar Moderator   Join Date: Jun 2001 Location: London, England Posts: 3,612 Well at this stage MilkDrop still has similiar setup as before. It is not at the level of customization of AVS but with 3d ssc's and other things there is more posibilities and it is more like AVS. Anyways here si the latest beta for all those interested. Didn't want to spam but there appears to be some interest ANd maybe oneday we will see the equivalant AVS features in a 3d enviornment like MilkDrop. At least one of Nullsofts visualizations is still being worked on. v1.04beta4b - http://www.geisswerks.com/t/milkdrop...e_surprise.zip There are examples of ssc's etc from the forums.

 26th July 2003, 12:07 #11 Rovastar Moderator   Join Date: Jun 2001 Location: London, England Posts: 3,612 *sigh* not going to enter some flaming battle. WE all know the problems/limitations with the various visualizations that Nullsoft make. It has been discusssed many time before about the lack of 3d H/w support of AVS and how the best thing for it would be to start from the ground up to make a new version which uses these features. Thankfully the engine for MIlkDrop has been updated to DX8 too so it is a load faster too. Anyway as a lover of all visualiations I am just glad Nullsoft are at least updating one of there vvises.

 31st July 2003, 11:20 #20 anubis2003 Forum King     Join Date: Dec 2002 Location: middle of somewhere Posts: 5,564 Kinda offtopic, but this thread is going nowhere and it's about both of the main Winamp visualizations, and I didn't want to get yelled at for crossposting: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=144218 Ryan Geiss is being laid off. AOL seems to be royally fucking up winamp in every way that they can. It seems as though nobody cares about any of the visualizations any more.

The original topic kinda faded away into AVS vs Milkdrop, so I changed it. AOL does suck ass though. [Over The Monkey] | [My DeviantArt] | [Seti] | [Atmo Digital Design Forums]

 1st August 2003, 07:00 #24 Illusion Major Dude   Join Date: Jun 2001 Location: Adelaide, Australia Posts: 689 Has anyone who wants to develop a plugin considered using Ryan's visualisation SDK framework? That would have to give someone a decent start surely, provided they had decent knowledge in that area...
