Hi,

Are you using the ZGameEditor Visualizer plugin that's included with FL Studio? Or do you want to make a standalone visualizer?

Alright .. ZGameEditor doesn't have mp3 / ogg playback nor spectrum analysis capabilities build-in ( unlike the FL Studio plugin ), so you're going to have to use a DLL for that.

ok so how would I do that or make that, I have no scripting knowledge and dont know how to make stuff like a DLL just thought maybe this would be a program that I could make a visualization software.

You don't have to write your own DLL. There are plenty of libraries available that can playback and analyse audio.

ZGameEditor is primarily a game engine / editor. You can extend its capabilities ( such as music visualization ) through dll's .. but i wouldn't recommend starting out with this when you're still new / learning.

But not wanting to learn other parts of the game engine..... I soly wanted to make a application to maek a music visualizor, and the way I learn is by making teh project I am wanting to learn by, as my dad use to say people learn best when there excited about wanting to learn something that will benafite them then learning something that has nothing to do with what they are already not wanting to learn...... I dont knwo maybe by giving a tutorial on how you did that in that process of learning that I will also be learning all those other things you sayed I need to learn before hand while still learning what I am wanting to make in the process,

Please can you show me how you did that please step by step

Thanks

It's not that easy to show you step by step, but maybe someone can create or wrap a dll to get you started. BUT...Even with the audio library, developing a music visualization software is difficult as far as the math and programming skill is concerned. It's not possible for a beginner with no experience in programming.

You should start with the fl studio music visualization pipeline first. The audio, spectral band, midi input, parameter sliders and video export are already built in, and it can all be scripted however you like + there are examples and support forums too. All you need to do is install FL Studio, the visualizer plugin is fully functional and free to use with the demo version.
