Hi Michael, all,

Just want to state my support for Michael's "Direct backed WritableImage".
Having a way to do natively-backed rendering is IMO the most important
feature still missing from FX. This is an area where QT is still way ahead
with it's OpenGL/OpenGL ES integration.

Having something like a direct-WritableImage implementation would also make
it easier to implement a video viewer using native decoder libs. Personally
I find this approach much more powerful than the existing FX 3D and media
streaming features, which are (especially 3D) limited in their

I will be at JavaOne this year, so if there is any interest in meeting up
and talking JavaFX I'm in!

Best regards,

Sten Nordström
