Mission Control switch composition window need 2 clicks


Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • Mac OS 10.11

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

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

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

When I use Mission Control with the trackpad (the same happens when using the mission control keyboard key though) to switch from the editor to the composition window I need to repeat it twice.

This however does happen only if I changed a port value. Not if I just add a new node on the canvas for example.

Joining a screencast of it.

Have you found a workaround?:

Finished playback output port on "Play Video File"

As mentionned here at Problem with List Files to speed would it be possible to add a "Finished Playback" output port on Play Movie File like on the Play Audio File node ?

It would be handy to know when to launch the next movie when one is done. Or is there another way to do that ? I came up with a method that compares the movie duration with the time frame but it's a little bulky.

You are very right to take time to understand the things !
Yes of course you can load a list of videos instead of images.
Do the same as for the images, list a folder that contains the videos, and like in the "Load+Change Images 1.4" grab one item after the other and let them play.

The problem is to make the next play only when 1 is finished. I don't know if there is a particular reason the Play Movie node has no "Finished Playback" output port like Play Audio File, am gonna create a feature request.
As a workaround there is this a little bulky method, other better methods welcome.

Now if you don't need a mirror curve on the rotation amount you can just set the loop to "none" (looks more like a multiply time effect) but at least you can block the amount of rotation in degrees. Because no more mirror, the curve duration should be the display time of the image duration aka the same value as Fire Periodically.
Changed some values on the Threshold curve too to make it look better IMO, you choose ;)


Mais si tu n'as pas besoin d'un effet miroir sur la courbe des degrés de rotation tu peux mettre la courbe sans effet miroir (du coups ça ressemble plus à un multiply time) mais au moins tu peux blocker le nombre maximum de rotation en degrés. Par contre vu que la courbe n'est plus en miroir la durée de la courbe doit être la durée d'affichage de l'image, donc la la même valeur que celle de Fire Periodically.
J'ai aussi effectué 2/3 modifications à la courbe du Threshold je trouve ça plus joli à toi de voir ;)
