I am the Senior AV Broadcast Technology Analyst at Loyalist College where I primarily design, install and maintain campus AV, Digital Signage and Broadcast systems and equipment. I have also do some teaching for Camera, VFX and Audio/Video editing as well; I love my job. My background includes Broadcast Television, Video Production and Technical work. My passions include traditional and digital drawing, fictional creative writing, VFX, and cinematic video projects. I have also recently rekindled my interest in robotics and have tinkered with Arduino and Raspberry Pi and a few programable robots.
I find I most comfortably find myself in the chaotic limbo between the artistically and technically creative, believing one can indeed excel at both. Which is probably why I am loving VUO! :)
●●●○ — It prevents me from completing a specific task with Vuo.
Steps causing the bug to occur:
Connect Receive Live Video node to Render Image to Window node
Connect Fire on Start node to Start port on Receive Live Video node.
Run Composition and on the Receive Live Video mode Right Click on Stop port and Fire Event.
Now try and start the video again with the Start port... it won't start. Or am I doing something wrong?
Have you found a workaround?:
I'm trying to disable this node for 2 video seperate input devices when the composition doesn't require them but I can't and once it's stopped it won't start again unless I close and restart the composition.
I ended up using the 8-input Select Latest 2-input Select Latest nodes as well... but came up with a ridiculously convoluted way of using a bazillion more nodes to get the exact same result... your way is SO much more elegant!
I thank-you for pointing out how much I was overthinking this... I keep forgetting you can hold down Option and strip out data to just leave it an event and use it to trigger just about anything.
OK, I'm running into an issue I can't quite seem to figure out, it may just be that I'm stuck on the way I used to do it in QC with the Multiplexer node where I could pick as many inputs as I needed. Here's the situation, I have 16 buttons on a touch screen, the plan is for each button to trigger an image (composite image) or video to display on another screen. In QC I would have just made each button trigger the corresponding Source Index value of a 16 channel multiplexer and just send the output to the proper billboard.
