That means the Vuo site won't let me update the original zip file.

When I try to delete the zip, it asks me to log in, keeps doing this for files I try to delete/upload. When I first tried to upload the corrected zip it wasn't immediately obvious that it didn't work (asking me for creds when I'm already logged in is weird behavior, should have checked to see if it uploaded correctly, I was tired). I think I had trouble with the screenshot upload, too. I often mess things up the first time I post then make a bunch of edits/corrections, standard for me. Seems vuo.org comp gallery does not like edits/changes to original posts?

Still your local path after redownloading it just now ;)

Thanks again. My mistake, thought I wiped my local path, forgot that I need to reenter the path after unpublishing the port. Uploaded again with correction.

That's fantastic — really, really helpful. I'm sure I can get somewhere close to what I want now. Your assistance is hugely valued, and I think I'm going to have to go and buy Vuo Pro soon. :)

Ah, funwithstuff more something like that, ok, there is also a Make Grid Lines Object but for the same attraction you'd have to play with the different 3D Filters Vuo offers, joined is a quick test composition that bends, twirls, rotates with a curve, and make copies of it.

Because your path is ~/Desktop/DESKTOP A/VUO/butterfly0/ so I would have to put it on the same location, on the desktop, in a folder named Vuo and sub-folder "butterfly0".

With ./ it scans the folder the composition is in, no matter where it is

Thanks for posting that correction. I don't quite understand why it works for me yet you have to change it to get it to work.

Granted, I'm slow and busy with other things, but it has taken me a few years to nail down some QC equivalents.

Regarding the built-in line family module in QC, I just revisited and it took me only a few minutes to make the comp demoed in this video. Nothing ripe and ready to animate like that in Vuo. (EDIT: I just saw that you posted in the meantime. Yep.)

Yet another suggestion, but the way I'd start in Vuo would be to try Build List (or Process List) to iterate some lines like in the attached comp (and I'm not sure at the moment why the intermittent black spots in the animation/lines/shader). It'll be different but cool in its own way... maybe?

Thanks so much to both of you for the examples you've offered. I think I'll be able to get somewhere a little closer with these hints, though it'll take a little work to get my existing line-based craziness moved to vuo.

So you know what I'm trying to create, here's one of my works from a few years back. I have a few more recent things based on this which I'm looking to translate:

Wasn't seeing the butterfly, had to update the Wings URL folder path to ./ to see it,
Nice one :)
