How severely does this bug affect you?: 

●●○○ — It's annoying but I can work around it.

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. Edit a subcomposition
  2. Insert play movie node, or play audio file node.
  3. Run composition.
  4. Trigger nodes.
  5. Nothing happens.

Have you found a workaround?: 

I messed around with this for a while but can't figure it out. Could be something to do with "updating paths" etc? However this doesn't explain why new nodes added still will not play.


Hi, the subcomposition you

Hi, the subcomposition you attached works fine.

I think the bug has something to do with the paths? Not sure

The following sequence never fails to produce this bug for me:

  1. New composition
  2. Add any node. For example "share value"
  3. Select this node and package as subcomposition
  4. Vuo asks to save composition first - save as "test123" (or any file name)
  5. Vuo now asks: save subcomposition to local library - save as "test123" (or any file name) ~ Now we are editing the subcomposition.
  6. Drag and drop a video file into this subcomposition.
  7. Select add "play movie node"
  8. launch subcomposition (play)
  9. fire play movie node
  10. check node output - nothing
