unable to build playback or render process for this configuration

"unable to build playback or render process for this configuration"   
RenderConfigurator::ConnectFunction buildRenderConfiguration ( POutputManager  outputPossibilities,
Timings  playTimings 

Factory function to build a RenderConfigurator specifically tailored for a PlayProcess, about to be started.

this builder function is used by the PlayService when it comes to creating a new PlayProcess. The generated ConnectFunction treats a single ModelPort to produce a suitable rendering setup, pulling data from this port; it thus embodies the specific knowledge how to configure and setup the rendering or playback at the EngineFacade, based on the playback speed and quality desirable for this playback process to be initiated.

building a special subclass here and managing this instance by smart-ptr. Then wrapping all of this up into a functor, which can thus be passed on by value. This functor will later on be used to transform each desired model port into a suitable output connection, where the actual output will be resolved through the given OutputManager
outputPossibilitiesan OutputManager instance describing the situation where output is about to be generated (e.g. a viewer in the GUI or a file to be rendered)
playbackTimingscharacterisation of the kind of play/render. Besides the required delivery interval, this might also define quality-of-service expectations.
the public access point to an RenderConfigurator, wrapped as generic function object
