Using a Addition node on the Which input of the end point Get From List node is not really helping, doesn't seem to do what I thought it would do adding 1 or -1 to the result.

List order getting confused in transition of point values between two lists of points

Basically a composition to crossfade 2D point lists from List A to List B.

I'm continuously building a new list derived from the starting positions list and ending positions list using interpolation. A Curve node is used inside a loop ** Build List** node to transition from A to B for each point using the start point, end point and time input for the transition timing.

Smoothly transition a list of 2D points.vuo

Rotation and Scale do not work for Make Text layer node.

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

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

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. Create a Make Text Layer and feed its output into a Transform Layer "layer" input.
  2. Wire Transform Layer output to a Render Layers to Window node. (For extra insurace wire Requested frame as event only wire to Transformation input.
  3. As another level of check create a Make 2D Transform node and adjust rotation and scale and wire to the TRansform input of the Transform Layer node you previously made.
  4. Run composition with either setup

Have you found a workaround?: 

Using a Make Text Image node.

Other notes: 

Apparently Make Text Layer produces crisper text, and it's not restricted in size use by the originating size like Image node. Otherwise I dont care other than it's confusing for new users.

It seems like CMD + "T" fires an event at the last port you manually fired an event from using CMD + Click or from Right Button Menu. So Vuo just remembers the last port I think.

Thanks Xavierdev! When I wrote this I didn't know how to make a data wire into an event only wire (hold SHIFT key while dragging) so I couldn't run it into the Fire input port (why I put into the Refresh port of the Build List node). I ended up running the fire wire to the Refresh port of the Shared Value node before the Build List and that passed the event into the Fire of the Build List

Jaymie What is the point of the Refresh port next to the node title if it doesn't cause the node to execute? How can it be refreshing the output without firing? I see how it works for nodes will walls on the inputs (Shared List node for eg), it fires when you want it to rather than when the new data arrives. But in this case it doesn't seem to make Build List node fire.
