hmmm that's weird, i can't

hmmm that's weird, i can't seem to make it work, i checked both example composition as suggested and also tried with that nodes "change all shaders" and " change shaders for material"... whenever i try to connect the get scene node to one of these the shader on the object become a flat purple colour....( i guess that means that it can't read the node "shade with colour")...any ideas of finding ways around it ?

Here are two things to try:

  • Unlike QC, nothing in Vuo happens without having an event to initiate the action. The shaders need an event to move their data to any downstream node. Try running a cable from the trigger port of "Fire on Start" to the refresh port of "Shade with Color." (Similar to the cable running to the "Make Checkerboard Image" in the example composition ReplaceShaderforScene.)
  • Instead of using a "Fire Periodically" node, the trigger port of the "Fire on Start" node will create your lights and camera when the trigger port is connected to their refresh ports.

Hope that's helpful.
