I looked but didn't see anything. Are they always generated? If so, I'm happy go back to the gallery and search again.

Hi Jean Marie, it's running as an exported app. I've learned a little more: the only symptom that something is wrong is the app stops working, and refuses to Quit. I didn't see anything noteworthy on the console until I Forced Quit when there were numerous mDNSResponder messages. I'm attaching those messages in case it's useful. The app has no network features (other than using OSC locally) but it does seem as though the problem has started since we enabled WiFi to support entirely unrelated network functionality. Does this info help at all?

Need advice on tracking App hang after many days of runtime :-)


Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • macOS 10.15

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

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

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

I use a Vuo app as part of an installation and it hangs after a week or two requiring a full system restart. There doesn't seem to be any specific cause, so I'm guessing it's a memory-leak type of issue in Vuo or some related system component. But I'm not sure what I can do to help find the problem.

Have you found a workaround?: 


Other notes: 

The app is a Motion Monitor that reports motion across a video frame.

Ideally there would be a way for the App to use its location as the default folder so explicit folder names didn't have to be baked in, but at least the App is working now :-).

This turns out to be because the current folder for files is the composition's location when using the Vuo Editor, but the desktop (I think) when running as a standalone App. So my App was not finding my JSON file and using the most recent values. If I add the full path to my file name the App finds my JSON file and reads changing values as expected.
