"Check Mouse Status" continues to update Position/Is Pressed values during screencapture

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. Create a composition with a window and mouse interaction
  2. Run composition
  3. Take a photo of screen with Command-Shift-4 (cross hair selection comes up)
  4. Select part of screen in front of active Vuo Composition window
  5. Composition Window registers mouse interaction

How did the result differ from what you expected?

I expected the interaction to not occur when moving mouse over window.

Have you found a workaround?


Other notes

  • Vuo version: 1.2.0
  • macOS version: OS X 10.9

I have attached a screen video outlining issue- first try is without the VuoScene selected- next is with it selected.

This issue only seems to affect Check Mouse Status. I updated the title to reflect that.

Other mouse nodes that fire events, like Receive Mouse Drags, already properly ignore mouse events during screencapture, so you could use that as a workaround in the meantime.

Thanks Steve. I only really noticed it when working on (well more like hacking with a blunt object) the LatLong Shader I sent you. It was annoying to resize the window while working only to have it move all over the place. I could imagine in the future that could be an issue.

Fixed in Vuo 1.2.3.
