no capital letters in osc out messages???

Post by deflost »

hello, we can not understand why it is not possible to send out osc messages with capital letters!
so we try to sent a

/Mx/button/4204

to onyx, but everytime we fill in /Mx/button/4204 in the costum osc message field of osc out,and then we stop shortcuts, open osc shortcuts again and we see /mx/button/4204 in the same field.
so it is not possible to send osc messages to obsidian onyx!
because the incoming message have to be /Mx/button/4204!?

so what to do in this case?

thx.

It appears that this is a bug. Resolume is autocorrecting the case on my system as well.

TBH it's good practice to just use lowercase when dealing with strings, so if you can change things on your listeners end to specify a different address name, I would do that.


For the time being you can try building a translator app in TouchDesigner or Chataigne to get you by.

I could also write a small translation app if you really need it, but these two apps are already established.

We correct the case indeed, we did this for incoming messages for convenience sake. All our internal addresses are lowercase, this way it's less likely you make a mistake. But i guess when you have a custom OSC Output Address that is not what you want. I created an issue for this.

hello.
we build a mini patch to translate in isadora.
thanks for your explanaiton.
on onyx side the osc addresses are fix as rock.
some of them are unknown by the development team!!!
osc works most of the time but it is horrible documantated.
so please make it possible to fill in capital letters in the osc output, onyx is not the only software which has fix osc addresses with capital letters.

thank you very much.

...what also would be very great, is to have the possibility to give the outgoing osc strings from resolume a delay time.
in our case we trigger a column in arena by artnet from onyx, and send at the same time a osc string from arena when ever this column is triggered,
so this goes to isadora and there it is translated and
then the real osc goes to onyx for select the next cuelist only to view it.
and in 3 of 10 cases anywhere in this chain there is something wrong.
and onyx does not get the right command in the right order and jumps to the wrong cuelist.
so we think the problem is every thing happends at exact same time on one computer!?

thx.

For delays, you'll want to use a translator app for that. That is why those apps exist.
