I am having a little trouble with some unexpected behaviour of the reader(file) and separate(string) node.
I have a patch which basically saves a lot of values from a spread into a long string and into a .txt file. That is then read in a different part and the process reversed. Nothing new here…
Now i want to be able to switch which file it reads, basically a way to read one of a few files like presets.
So i made a presets folder and using Dir and GetSlice to choose the file. Now the weird part:
The chain: Dir->GetSlice->Reader->Separate doesn’t let me connect between reader and separate, even though the output is not different to when it was just the one file connected to reader.
Equally taking the route of: Dir->Reader->GetSlice->Separate doesn’t let me connect between GetSlice and Separate, even though once again the String is exactly the same.
Am i missing something ??
Thank you, Armin.
