Firstly, thank you so much for adding this! As a performance artist looking to leverage UE4 outside the conventional videogame context, I feel this is a very exciting development.
I know you stated you offer no support, but I was hoping you might be able to help clarify one of the Installation instructions you provided. In step 5, you state “Add a reference to SpoutPlugin in your Unreal Project Build file”. This is my first go at compiling UE4, so I’m a bit lost as to where to find the build file and how to reference the SpoutPlugin. Any tips you may be able to give would be greatly appreciated.
same as L05, thanks a bunch for this! This could be a MAJOR hit for gamification experiences too.
I also read the line with you offering no support, but after five recompiles (Engine+project) I thought I’d test my luck.
I followed all of the steps to the best of my knowledge. I’m using version 4.9.2 from Github. Engine folders are merged, Spout compiled and .dll, .lib, and .h files placed where your .txt’s indicated. Step #5 in particular, I think consists in adding this:
to MyProject.Build.cs file. I used the GenerateProjectFiles.bat and even the “Generate Project Visual Studio files” option of MyProject.uproject (Which is a C++ Project with starter content, by the way). I force OpenGL start with -opengl.
But when I open MyProject from the Project browser of the freshly compiled and opengl-executed UE4Editor.exe*, the resulting project has no “Spout” category or nodes in any kind of Blueprint. What am I doing wrong? Excuse my boldness at ignoring your “no support notice”, but I’d really be interested in getting this to work…
I think adding it as a Game plugin rather than an Engine plugin isn’t the solution either, right?
*It must be said that this error dump appears. Dunno if it could have any influence, as everything continues running without crashes:
Hi Everyone, I got Zima’s tutorial to work fine in 14.18.3 But I wanted to have 6 sends, and the original Example Spout scene I can’t get to work. Any tips on setting up multiple senders to Spout would be great. Thank you.
Just wanted to let you guys know that in Lightact media server, we’ve enabled integration with Unreal Engine. In short, what it allows you to do is to share textures and variables between Lightact and UE. Once you get the UE texture back to Lightact you can use all the media server functionalities available.
I would be very happy if some of you guys can give it a spin and let us know how can we improve it.
Hey! I am loving the promise of Spout UE plugin but I cannot get it to work for me. Frankly I can’t seem to get Spout working on my system at all with the test utilities and Resolume on its own.
Is anyone familiar with what sort of troubleshooting to be looking at?
Im running a Razer Blade laptop with RTX2060
I’m wondering if it’s a DirectX issue, or running in 32bit etc? Any advice??
Thanks and all the best to everyone’s creative endeavours!
