    Indeed, this was discussed earlier. The issue is that NodeBox is not an OpenGL application and so can't share OpenGL frame buffers.

    The main issue is that NodeBox is not an application with a real-time focus: it is about generating something that can be used afterwards in a different application. Therefore, your best bet is to use "Export Range" to export your animation as a set of images and work with that.

    Not without changing the NodeBox rendering to OpenGL, which is not planned.

    So, for the moment, we're sorry but we can't support this.
