[Mac OS X] Window creation causes "flashes"
« on: November 30, 2010, 05:38:03 pm »
I have successfully implemented streaming video via apple's QTKit. The setup i'm currently working with is this:

Play the video and when exiting create a SFML Window.

The issue i'm experimenting is the following: in the process of the window creation the resolution changes and there  some flashes appear(black and white screens). I was thinking if there is a way to work around these so the transition from the movie to the sfml application would be smooth and no "flashes" would appear.

EDIT: I tested this with bot sfml 1.6 and sfml 1.7.

There is no workaround to disable the transition or avoid the flash (though this annoying behavior isn't here on purpose).

Besides, the development of the Mac port is currently focused on SFML 2.0, thus I don't think you'll get any fix.
