VisBubble: Round Visualizer for Rainmeter by undefinist VisBubble: Round Visualizer for Rainmeter by undefinist

Star! 1 Million Views! 

VisBubble is a round audio visualizer for Rainmeter.
It reacts to the sounds on your computer.

FAQ:
  1. How do I access the settings?
    Access the settings by double-clicking the skin, or via right-click context menu. You can also open the skin SettingsWindow.ini
    The raw settings file is Rainmeter/Skins/VisBubble/Settings.inc

  2. How do I only detect sound from a single application?
    You can't. You can only detect sounds from a single input/output source.
    However, you can make VisBubble only appear when you play music. To do so, open Settings.inc and set your player & HideWhenNotPlaying to 1.

  3. This skin uses too much CPU! How do I reduce CPU usage?
    Reducing the Num Of Items can reduce the CPU usage. Also, you can increase the skin's Update (right-click, Edit Skin, change the Update= value at the top)

  4. This skin isn't working?
    There are many possible problems, check out this post for troubleshooting.

  5. I can't drag VisBubble too high up, when I do it'll snap to another position!
    Right-click the skin, click Manage Skin, untick Keep On Screen. Then, modify the x and y position directly by typing.

  6. How do I use the color picker?
    Select the color in the main window. The right bar is the brightness. The bottom bar is the transparency.
    After that, hit the bottom right box (which shows your new color) to confirm.

  7. How do I use the gradient editor?
    Click inside the bar to add a new point. Right-click a point to delete it.

You should update the purchase option, because it states "includes RM skin" and I thought purchasing meant a extra skin. I spent a long time trying to figure out where the extra option was, but then very bottom of your notes it says there is no difference. I love the skin, and all about support, just FYI, cause it is confusing. Thanks!

That was the first thing I tried, its like it doesn't appear on the desktop anymore. The whole notepad file changed to something different, which is posted above. No matter what i do in the settings window, the visualizer does not appear on the desktop. I've located where it should be by right clicking around until I got the popup with the VisBubble settings. It just stays invisible. And like I said, the first time i downloaded it it worked immediately and I could go into the settings window or settings notepad file and edit some things. After a while the visualizer stopped working, and the original code was replaced by this code, which is completely different.

Any ideas?

Is there a way of getting a gradient for the WaveFilled that starts in the center and finished on the outside?
Reply
:iconundefinist:
undefinist Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, in WaveFilled.ini you can change the last line, the "Fill Color" part to "Fill RadialGradient ..." (Look up the rainmeter docs).
Note that this might look kinda funny because the gradient won't conform to the wave shape, but I'm not sure what look you're after!

I've tried that, and it sets the color to white, even when I it's set to a different color in the settings window even after I refresh it.

Hey, you might have not set it properly.

See docs.rainmeter.net/manual/mete…

In particular, try:
Shape=Path Path | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill RadialGradient MyGradient1
MyGradient1=0,0 | 155,200,232,255 ; 0.0 | 6,46,75,255 ; 1.0


Take note that the gradient will "jiggle" according to the wave.
To prevent that, the easiest way is to use the latest 4.3 beta which adds a new "Container" feature.

Then, just use:
Shape=Path Path | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill Color ffffff

And add a new meter:
[Gradient]
Container=Wave
Meter=Shape
Shape=Ellipse (#ExtrudeMax#+#Radius#),(#ExtrudeMax#+#Radius#),(#ExtrudeMax#+#Radius#),(#ExtrudeMax#+#Radius#) | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill RadialGradient MyGradient1
MyGradient1=0,0 | 155,200,232,255 ; 0.0 | 6,46,75,255 ; 1.0

Can you, instead of adding a pay button on the rmskin, put a paypal donate link on the description so people can post screenshots of their works on the rainmerte group with this skin without being denied?

I love it. Great work.

After starting with your skin, the VisBubble Settings window was not responding at all. I had my skins located in a subfolder of "i:\Eigene Dateien\...\Rainmeter". After moving all my skins into "i:\configs\Rainmeter" it worked fine.
It seems that your skin dont like to be in a path with empty strings.
However, if i look into logging of Rainmeter, iget following errors:

Any ideas?

Hi ! 
Is it possible to only detect sound from a player like spotify ?
It hides automatically when I'm not playing any music, but when I play some, I can see the visualizer affected by voices over discord. I've set the player to spotify in the settings already.
Thanks in advance ^^

If anyone in the future has problems with this I have found a solution. Go to your sound options and right click which audio output your wanting to use. Then click on "configure speakers". I set mine up on "7.1" surround and it works perfect now, but I'm not sure about the other options and I don't really wanna mess with it anymore lol. Its probably just because it was set to stereo by default. Thanks guys and hope this helps !
