a) yes, a switchable mode is an obvious improvement,
though the same can be achieved by having two frames,
one for stills and one for video.. this way you can also
do transparencies (alpha mode of fs.copy) etc.

b&c) well the way of recording should be as general as possible.
writing a video file is the next thing i'll do, though i'm afraid
it will consume too much cpu for anything else to be very
realtime anymore (except when using a hardware compression

  Subject: [PD] [FRAMESTEIN] Some questions about video

  some questions were aroused today 
  by my video-artist friend and, well, 
  I submit them to you, Juha Vehviläinen <jusu at iki.fi>,
  through the pd list because they are of a general interest :
  a/ we noticed that a frame is able to load a video AND 
  separate images at the same time,
  but images are always ON TOP of the video,
  the only way of removing them is to send 
  a "clear" message to the frame
  and this makes you loose all the loaded images.
  can we hope that they will behave as layers one day
  so that we could show an image or the video ??
  it could be a switch mode or a transparency effect
  ( would prefer the later, of course ).
  b/ is there a way that a frame could be sent 
  to a video specific card like a Miro DC30 ??
  c/ as i'm not hopping a positive answer to point b/
  ( I'm quite ignorant of Direct X but I know it's not open tech,
  so it must be a tough matter to redirect output ),
  we'd be grateful if there would be a video recording object one day.
  The goal of points b/ and c/ is to record the work you do in real-time.
  Thanks for clarifications.
