I am experiencing strange behaviour with the S+R (Advanced) nodes.
In the attached help-file I use a modified version of Kalle’s P (Spreads) node. Basically I changed the ‘normal’ S and R nodes to S and R (Advanced) nodes. To keep it simple I removed the ‘fading’ functionality.
The strange thing is, in my experience an R node receives its input one frame later than when you send it to the S node (allthough I have never found any information that confirms that, I found out by trial and error).
In the attached patch (at least on my machine on beta24 and beta23), one of the R nodes receives the new value 1 frame after the other one, which is very annoying, but since I am using the same node, I would suppose they behave exactly the same…
Is this a bug, can someone else confirm this (or does it work on your machine as it should, in that case why wouldn’t it work here)?
the S and R advanced nodes are plugins and not native nodes from vvvv, and i guess you have hit a very rare spot where the calculation order of the nodes matter. the S node stores its value in a static class, from which the R node gets its value. now, if one of the R node gets evaluated before the S has stored the value there, it receives the old value.
no idea how to solve that yet, but thanks for noting.
