the patch is still empty and also the plugin doesn’t do anything yet. i don’t know how much time i can spend into that. the calculation - if correct - however should have been already the most difficult part.
next step would be to solve the quadratic equation at the last line of the maths stuff.
you get 2 solutions for P.x.
after that you can compute the two solutions for P.y, P.z.
and you have your two points.
Create a plugin folder in vvvv directory
makes me curious. if you have the latest version (beta16) of vvvv there is already a
directory containing some files. you need this latest version as it is the first and only so far that supports plugins at all.
so as greg describes in this dir you create a
directory where the .dll goes. the helppatch goes directly in the
directory though. restart vvvv and start that helppatch.
if that doesn’t work you may not have installed the .net2.0 framework. a link to the download is on the beta16 startup-patch.
I install again “vvvv_40beta16”
I install the last version of Direct X
I install net2.0 Frameworks
All my patch works well
The Help patch of timeliner,MultipleParticles and Lindenmayer works well and I can drag the .dll file in a new patch without any problem.
I create a “bin” folder (where I put the .dll) in the existing “plugins” folder.
I put the help patch directly in the “plugins” folder.
And it’s dont works, iven if I drag the .dll in the patch, or in a new patch.
I also try to keep the folder “bin” and “3spheres” you send me in the Cut3Spheres.zip file. It’s dont works too.
I dont know what to do now…I probably make a mistake but I cant find it.
sory for my bad zipping. i attach a new .zip whose contents may be extracted to anywhere on disk and doubleclicking the helppatch will invoke the .dll lying next to it.
so this just for the archives, but it will probably not solve your problem. can you check if you get any message in the console? create a renderer tty and then drag the .dll on a patch. if the node does not appear at least an error message is supposed to appear in the console.
also, can anybody else see if this works? it works for me on 2 different pcs.
me neither know what to try more. but can you try the same on a different pc? since it seems to work for everybody else and even for you with the other plugins…i really don’t know what the difference could be.
the conversion from 16.1 to 16 should not be related. that is only concerning the patch but since you say you cannot even drop the .dll on a new patch there seems to be something else going on.
