Subcomp crashes editor when publishing ports


Vuo version: 

Fixed in Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • macOS 10.14

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

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

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. Create subcomp from nodes in editor without published ports
  2. With both main and subcomp open, publish a port (3d?)
  3. Change name
  4. Crash

Have you found a workaround?: 


Other notes: 

Vuo build 10830

I can mail over the full crash log if needed.

Shouldn't be too hard, I would imagine something like this would work; if (item1 - item2) < [item1 AND threshold], do something.

If you want to make it more complicated though, you could use an enqueue node set to two items, get them, and compare them as the boolean operation. Then you would have a directional threshold ;)

Thanks for the update Jean Marie! Good to hear! :)

I'm interested in this as well. I rarely see macbooks on tour anymore - apart from simple QLab setups in theaters. In the scenarios I hear about them, it is usually problematic (dongles not working, overheating etc). We still have 2015 models running QLab/Keynote, and haven't had any compelling reasons hardware-wise to upgrade them apart from wear & tear/physical damage. USB-C has been a huge hit to reliability on the road. Going forward, we're limiting the builds to rackmount mac minis for QLab/Keynote, and Resolume/MadMapper will be running on PCs instead.

The new Mac Pros are also too little too late, and at a price point where they compete with dedicated media servers/solutions - I'm not certain they bring anything to the table. It does have the rackmount capabilities, but otoh you can build a rackmount crazy dual GPU powerhouse for the MP entry level price (which has 4GHz 8c/16t rx580/32G ram). My current home computer is better specced than that for half the price. Including a monitor. With a stand.

And to clarify, I'm not a disgruntled Apple customer - I just don't see the financial sense or prevalence in Apple equipment for this line of work any more.
