Multitouch Stack, revived

plugin multitouch gallery

about

I was doing some search today about multitouch image galleries in vvvv, but all I could find was MINT (which seems dead since last NODE) and elliotwood's year-old ((multitouch-stack.)) After some dll-collecting and repairing some things, I found latter one is still quite useful as a simple multitouch solution, so here it is with some additions such as aspect ratio correction and automatic initial image layouting.

PS: If I just overlooked something and there is already a built-in/much simpler/more convenient way, please tell me... :)

Great stuff!!

Where is available this "stack" node?

herbst 13/12/2014 - 16:25

The source of the dll? Probably elliotwoods has it somewhere, I don't have it.

Hi
I think that the "Selected" pin out is not working properly, it always set as active the last slice.

i think this might be the source. https://www.dropbox.com/s/jhzzz8y7j4askdk/stack%20MT.zip?dl=0

xd_nitro 14/05/2015 - 23:13

that was me just posted the source. didn't realise I was logged in as guest :)

xd_nitro 15/05/2015 - 10:45

oh turns out that source I posted isn't this node. Spoke with elliotwoods and he's checked and he doesn't have it any more.

.net decompile?

maybe this would also suit you

as fresh as multitouch photo galleries concept ::]

xd_nitro 15/05/2015 - 13:26

thanks eps. from testing them both this is superior right now however it does have a couple of bugs but there are work arounds. I just wish it could ignore transparent pixels when determining which image the user is trying to select.

Hallo,
I am experiencing a weird and difficult to debug behavior, touches become unvailable or just a single touch is available at some point, it can happen from time to time or at application startup, I haven t been able to find a pattern to reproduce this problem.
Anybody has experienced anyhting similar?
ELO 5500L display, Windows 8.1, vvvv 45beta33.7

@io
is this related to this plugin ?

can you check two things:

01. can you reproduce this with just the touch nodes in your patch

02. does this happen with windowstouch too ?

we had problems with the touch nodes made by devs while the "old" windowstouch plugin always worked. if so, its probably worth starting a forum thread

io 24/06/2015 - 21:36

Hi, doh a full day of debugging and I think that all in all it is a problem with the drivers. It seems like the situation is degrading with the time, getting LBSODs now when I unplug the usb cable.
Worth starting a forum thred definetely.

debugging is so much easier with code at hand, nevermind fixing

is there a reason why this is not on github?

io 24/06/2015 - 23:47

The issue does not seem to be related to vvvv, switching to the main forum.

xd_nitro 25/06/2015 - 11:43

We now have some source code! Elliot couldnt find the source and was happy for it to be decompiled. Vux the legend decompiled and did something or other and it now works as a dynamic plugin.

Thank you, it works perfectly, I tested it on a 3M multitouch 32" screen using 30 fingers! worked amazingly smooth.

pechart 30/09/2016 - 15:51

Is this still available somewhere? Thanks!

xd_nitro 30/09/2016 - 18:00

updated download link - https://www.dropbox.com/s/l9l5lvxul13w0ac/MultitouchStack_code.zip?dl=0

be great to get some work done on this.

tonfilm 30/09/2016 - 21:00

... that's why i dislike dropbox links and why they should be forbidden in public forums.

xd_nitro 30/09/2016 - 22:22

errrr... what's the best way to make it available? Can't think of a method that doesn't risk death one day.

EDIT:

dead links off topic anyway but taken note.

Back on topic - would be great if this multi touch stack supported ignoring transparent pixels in textures.

joreg 01/10/2016 - 02:38

@xd_nitro why wouldn't you add it as a download to this contribution?

xd_nitro 01/10/2016 - 16:30

@joreg - oh never knew I could do that. That small, low colour contrast edit button has caught me out a few times. done

joreg 20/01/2017 - 21:02

for an example of how to patch something like this using VL, see

 \girlpower\VL\Animation\MultiTouch

in latest alpha downloads. will be included with beta>35
