NEWBIE ALERT (Scaling input values for Resolume)

MarkFrancombe's picture

Hi, sorry if this is very basic.. I have a very simple composition in quartz (my first actually)I want some parameter to be asjustable when I use the composition in Resolume Avenue. (set audio level to one parameter and maybe a knob to another.. etc) When the quartz file is in Resolume, the exposed inputs show up (figured how to do that) but the values are HUGE!!! A small value in Resolume is like 10000´s on the QUartz composition.

I tried to ad a math element to the input and devided it by 100, to see if that could scale the input value down a bit, but it didnt work.

Can some one help?

I can not help you directly to Resolume. But maybe it is similar to Vdmx

1st publish your input values ​​with minimum and Max ranges (inputt splitter and then on the patch inspector go to settings), for example, values ​ 0 to 1 or -10 / +10 which is then understandable values ​​for the external application I hope this helps best greetings from Patrick & Good Light

mark - can you do a screen grab showing the problem in situe, if Omnifox's advice hasn't worked for you.

I've not been able to reproduce your problem.

Are you actually seeing 1,000 in one of the value sliders?

Or did you mean that what worked nicely and neatly in QC went well and truly away from sight in Resolume?

Loving that mystery meat navigation Flash entry page upon your website - [http://www.markfrancombe.com/] - very amusing.

Thanks for the suggestion Omnifox, Im doing something wrong. I add the input splitter to the parameter I wish to expose in Resolume. The input dot is green and a rt click shows that input is selected. But... When I open the Parameters sidebar it says "No editable input parameters" If I do as yu say and open the Patch INspector and change the drop down to settings it shows a selector for TYPE: Its set to Virtual, is that ok?

Anything else I might be doing wrong?

Hi Cybero, no Im not seeing 1000 in one of the sliders, what you siad second, All movement I need in the Quartz patch is translated into the first micro millimeter on the Resolume interface.

I think that Omnifoxes advice seems like the right thing, except the inspector isnt showing up for me...

A picture speaks a thousand words and a movie does so in motion.

If Omnifox is on the right lines about the QC Inspector Panel then try looking at ..

see if that doesn't help you see the wood for the trees on what and where the Inspector Panel is.

Might be replacing that upload with one that has got mouse events included. [& audio too]

Of course you might have been meaning the Inspector Panels in Resolume, don't really know unless I'm told.

Will take a closer look at that side of the equation when I get back in from shopping :-).

AOK, now thanks.

I now know what was wrong. I couldnt leave the input splitter on virtual, as soon as I changed it to "number" I saw the min max boxes that Omnifox spoke of. @cybero, No I WAS talking bout Quartz. Sorry for being unclear. Oh and as for not showing up at all, I realised that all my experiments thus far were top level ones, this one, I had managed to put one clip (probably wrong terminology, I come from flash! world) inside another, I need to follow the inputs up one more level so I just added another bunch of input splitters...I supposed I dont need them in the higher levels as I can just rt click and select input cant i?

Anyway, thanks for both your help on this, you may consider this thread closed and solved! :-)

Im loving quartz btw, I feel its not gonna be long before I get a lot of good stuff happening!

i found this post by george toledo about using an interpolation patch to scale values inside and out of QC extremely helpful.
