“Save” pin is a toggle by default and not a bang. May be annoying if not noticed by the patcher :).
Well it’s “saving” as long as the input pin is 1 and stops when it switches to 0… makes sense to me…
agree, better if it will create bang box by default
+1… no text …
But when it would record by Bang you’d need a separate bang/input pin to stop it.
I mean it’s not like Writer is recording to RAM/Cache/PageFile all the time and just saves the file to HDD when you hit save… Then a Bang would be the fitting solution.
But it starts recording/saving/writing when “Save” input is toggled. Think of the “REC” button on an VHS/DVD/Tape recorder ;)
what they talk about is just a change of the subtype from toggle to bang with the exact same functionality of the node like now.
so, i agree, too
its not a screenshot-tool, so its pretty obvious to toggle the writer for an ongoing saving of the scene.
how about creating a module like this
Writer (Toggle Bang EX9.Texture).v4p (5.4 kB)
perfect issue for trying out a pullrequest…
hui, lots of discussion…
I simply thought it might be a case of “forgot to change the pin type”, thus the reporting. Of course it’s neither a problem nor very annoying, just different from the other writers. For me, Writer (EX9.Texture) is, in most cases, a high-res screenshot tool.
ah, that was a native node. so i changed that to conform with all the other writer nodes. thanks.
