How to hide inactive bars in a visualizer?

Post by irfarious »

I'm using the mosntercat visualizer currently, by default when I play any audio, bars stay as a thin line and rise up for thst particular frequency. But I've seen some visualizers where the bars remain hidden when an audio is played and onky the respective bars pop up when they hit their frequency. How can I do the same in monstercat?

There's no universal way to do it. Request the author of Monstercat to add it as a feature.

Sorry for the late reply...

You can do this in monstercat-visualizer by selecting 'Open variables file' from the skin context menu (right-click the skin) and changing the MinBarValue to zero.

Code: Select all

...

MinBarValue=0.0
; Minimum value shown in the visualizer bars.
; Default: 0.01

...
Save the file and refresh the visualizer skin.
