I think that the point is that since vvvv lets you chain flawlessly bool, floats and integers, it would be useless try to code some logic out of it: it would end with too much possibilities to manage the thing without it seeming a rather casual behavior.
Even with a key binding, it would be frigging frustrating: vvvv has usually very complex nodes - read it as many input pins.
What does this mean and what are the consequences, imo? Over and above another rant from you-know-who about another key combo, you would spend much more time
- trying to position the node so that is created the correct link between the two pin that you mean to be linked
- swearing out loud because it’s hard
- apologizing for it with people around you
- swearing again, but softly
- being heard again
- apologizing again
- moving to another room
- widening the node so to space pins
- moving carefully the node around
- creating the right link
- patching some more
- randomly undoing stuff
- repeating from point 2 to point 6
- thinking to buy 3 up to 5 monitors to have the chance to see all at once a logic part of the patch
rather than move approximately there a node, click on a pin and click on another pin.
Imo, indeed, the vimeo video shows a barely nice thing, but useless, if not dangerous at all.
