    Data Save for Apps

    Hello wonderful VUO team!

    I am starting a discussion rather than a reporting a bug as I'm not sure if it's something I'm doing incorrectly.

    I have included a very simple composition that saves an entered value to a data file (.txt). As a VUO composition it will both 'save' and 'fetch' from the named file in the root directory (the same directory that the composition file is in.

    However, when I export an App, it no longer saves to the file that it creates in the 'Contents/Resources' folder, but rather, saves the data to a file it self-creates on my desktop.

    VUO crashes on exporting app


    Vuo version: 

    Fixed in Vuo version: 

    OS version: 

    • macOS 10.13

    CPU architecture: 

    Intel x86_64

    How severely does this bug affect you?: 

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

    Steps causing the bug to occur: 

    1. Select export to Mac App
    2. When 'compiling' VUO crashes

    Other notes: 

    Having spent many, many hours building this lighting interface for my studio, I would like to run it as an app. I would be very appreciative if you are able to tell me what the problem is, and how I might be able to change the composition so that it will export as a Mac app.

    switching output w/o sending value . . .

    Hello team VUO and users,

    I'm hoping someone can help me with this as it's driving me a bit crazy . . . and maybe I'm missing the obvious. As I'm building more UI compositions switching outputs to various ports becomes valuable. However, the 'Select Output' nodes do not have the option to change the output without sending the current 'In' value. As I'm using VUO to control devices, this creates problems.

    I would really like to be able to switch output (sending no value) and then make changes to the 'In' which are sent to the selected output.

    I too would like to see a text/number input UI node. This would be very helpful for the 'lighting visualizers' I create in VUO. These would not need to be complex, just a graphic box that accepts either text or numbers when highlighted, and fires when 'enter' is hit.

    Not a super high priority, but very helpful for interactive compositions.

    VUO and QLab4 . . .

    Hello VUO team,

    Thank you for all your great work on Version 2. I'm enjoying all the improvements.

    One of the most popular programs for delivering sound/projections/lighting for live performance is QLab4. QLab has always offered the option of using a custom patch from Quartz Composer to manipulate images. However, the requirement are as follows:

    (Your custom composition must publish an input named "_protocolInput_Image" and an output named "_protocolOutput_Image".)
