Interaction patch bug

itsthejayj's picture

Is anyone else experiencing bugs with the interaction patch when using the offset inputs in 10.7.4 QC frameworks 236.7?

For example look at Quartz Composer/Contents/Resources/Patches/Drum Kit.qtz

I'm witnessing 'inf' outputs from the x,y positions whenever using x/y offset inputs

Also X swipe and Y swipe in 'expose multitouch guesters' is not working. Can anyone confirm this?

Re: Interaction patch bug

ah balls! was hoping that was a problem on my end.

@ jersmi are you running 10.7.4? Did you install a pre-release version of 10.7.4?

Getting cross-posty, but yeah, reconfirmed in 10.7.4 for me, not in 10.6 or 10.8 Dev Prev.

On my end, an interaction patch is working OK in a simple test.

The breakdown in output seems to be predicated on putting Interaction patch in an Iterator and doing something to an Offset input on it that should make it output a different result per iteration. I'm seeing either the same inf value or the value expected in the final iteration (I think... should have looked closer), spread across every iteration instead of the correct values. Haven't honed in on what makes the difference in result there.

I can confirm interactions reporting "inf" which has broken one of my apps.

Re: Interaction patch bug

look for the private 'hit test' patch as a nice substitute for a work around to this bug. (for them not in the know ;))

I'm definitely not in the know, What is the 'hit test' patch?

You might want to consider using _1024_InteractionStructure, that addresses these issues, plus add nudging ability, minus the multitouch features (but AFAIK KnM has a multitouch patch somewhere around).

and FYI, the built in Interaction patch was already broken in 10.6
