hei tatyo,

thanks for your contribution. it looks quite elaborate, but also quite "rock'n'roll". here are a couple of remarks:

  • the name of your module does not follow the vvvv naming conventions and also is not very expressive. how about something like TriangleEditor (3d) or similar. see: Conventions.NodeAndPinNaming
  • your module does not have inputs our outputs. like that it is not really practical
  • spend it a helppatch instead of writing instructions in the module itself
  • there is a Cursor and an Axis module shipping with vvvv, you don't need your own and i'd also not recommend building those into your module
  • have a look at the PointEditor and BezierEditor in the latest alphas for how we now create editor. maybe you can use the PointEditor as a basis for your editor..

Thank you Joreg!
I'm very basic.
It's work correctly?

joreg 23/10/2016 - 22:09

i'm afraid it doesn't work for me...
few more thoughts:

  • get the camera module out of your module and don't ship it with your module. in a helppatch use your module and connect one of the standard cameras to it (same as with axis and cursor modules).
  • learn about subpatches and how you can use those to cleanup your patch

I try once more.
sorry for mistakes.
thank you for the feedback.

this seems to work, no red nodes. but i'm afraid from the instructions i cannot figure out to do anything.

"Hold Return+Bang P+Mouse move : Add points"
i don't know how to do that. anyone?
