Sending touch paint output to a second instance of Ventuz

Postby Luke47921 » 15 Jan 2018, 11:01

I have a PC, and a tablet PC both running seperate instances of Ventuz. I want someone to draw on the tablet PC using a touch paint node, and I want to retrieve this drawing on the seperate instance of Ventuz running on the PC (over the same network), as well as still displaying the drawing on the tablet PC.

Currently I've done a very hacky version that takes a snapshot of the tablet PC output, and saves the texture to a file on a mapped network drive of the PC. The PC is set to read this texture and has auto update turned on, so it will display updates as they come in. However, this is not very smooth, and I'm not entirely convinced on the reliability of this method. Can anyone give me a better way I can go about achieving this?
