Manipulate Bitmaps

Usine provides an efficient way to manipulate background bitmaps of controls in order to create complex visual object.

All visual panel modules have a bitmap in inlet and a bitmap out outlet:

Now it becomes possible to chain them. A bitmap out of a first control can be sent to the bitmap in of a second control. So the second background bitmap becomes the first bitmap out.

Example

We want to create a complex object made of a camera capture mixed with a sampler waveform.

sampler waveform camera input

In your patch chain the bitmaps this way:

The visual result can look like:

camera input + waveform

Finally hide unwanted panel by setting the where parameter to invisible. Do it for the camera capture panel.
