Switch (Node Output) doesn't exist!

Hi all.

I know the node Switch (Node Output) doesn’t exist but I need to somehow do what I would expect this node to do.

I understand from a few posts in that there are bugs in Switch(String Output) and its Value Output Sister doesn’t seem much better. Here are those posts > http://www.vvvv.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_parentId=10272&forumId=4

So here’s my problem…

… I have a single XFile node and two effect nodes. I want to route the XFile Output to either effect depending on the value of an IOBox (Value). i.e. I can swap between different effects for a single model.

Am I missing something obvious?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

It sounds like you could use only one .fx for this, and then switch the technique.
You just need to copy/paste respective parts into the desired final effect… some lines will be the same so no need to copy them, but should be called the same way…


from what you want to achieve, it sounds like you don’t need any switch at all. just connect the x-file to both effects and both effects to the renderer. enable and disable either one of them directly on the effect and you should be fine
