Jaymie (@jstrecker) good point using Decode Movie Frame instead of Play Movie
Ok although I understand why the "Time" events have to be faster then the the "Set Target" it seems perhaps I don't fully understand if when composing.

For example I always wondered why a Hold Value or List higher in the flow combined lower with a Smooth with X with the same event rate never worked, is that the same problem ? So the same rate is not enough, it has to be faster right ? :

Ok so instead of making the time frame rate higher technically I could also lower the Live Input Frame Rate right (considering the window rate is high enough) ? :

But what I still don't understand with the Play Movie node is that when set to mirrored and I use the loudness to change the speed using a Change Speed node connected to the "Set Time" port it works :

But when using the "Playback Rate" instead of 'Set Time" when the movie reaches the end the composition Freezes, no more Events from nowhere, not even the window Requested Frame Output :

Bug or am I just not getting the same obvious thing again ? ;)

Hi Jaymie!

Thanks for your reply.

I'm so happy this is just something I missed. Backwards functioning Get Item From List FTW! What a nice surprise! I think I really like how this solution works in that by design you can limit and order the data that you want to address/select.

Best, -Tyson

What does "Support the option to use either faceted normals or smoothed normals" refer to?

Faceted is when you can see the triangles, smoothed is when their edges are smoothed over.

I'm wondering if there is a way to address (from a node other than Share Value) specialized ports on nodes such as the Feedback Blend Mode port on the Blend Image with Feedback node or the Smoothing port on the Filter and Smooth Controller Midi node?

i have a running dog video and i want it to go back and forth by the beat

You mentioned that you found a solution based on the Show Instant Replay example. Cool.

For reference of anyone else who lands here looking for how to do the same thing, here's one solution:

Here are some things to get you started and play with, try changing the parameters to achieve your effect.
It won't work on the beat since while there is a beat detector (I strongly assume) that it will only work for music. So you could use the loudness of your voice instead.

a - Simple loop movie with speed on loudness :

b - Setting the movie on mirrored instead of loop with the rate changing would look better but on my computer when the movie reaches the end the composition freezes, maybe a bug or maybe i's just not supported and I'm doing it wrong :

c - You could try to use the Set Time port of the "Play Movie Node" here is to get you started :

PS of course don't forget the URL to your movie ;)

Crash fetching large images

Status: 

Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • macOS 10.13

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

●●●○ — It prevents me from completing a specific task with Vuo.

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. Fetching a PNG image that is 17000 pixels wide.
  2. Choosing jpg didn't help.
  3. Simple composition and sample images attached.

Have you found a workaround?: 

No problems for a 16000 pixel wide image, I didn't narrow the search but perhaps a 2^14 issue.

i´ve been experimenting, but im completely new on this kind of software.

Going trhough the examples given with the software i found there is a simple way to play a video forward and backward with the "cycle through list" node. But i can´t figure out how to trigger it with sound, it is working with mouse click by now. This stuff is in the "showInstantReplay" example file

well, another example of what i want to do, i have a video that shows lips opening, and i want to display it on screen, so when i talk on the mic the video play and rewind reacting to my voice, giving the illusion of the talking screen ... something like that

I would like to be able to control/map these variables with keyboard, midi, or otherwise.
