Compile problems with the SkimMovie 2.02 Example

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. Load SkimMovie example
  2. Run it with VuoLoader - works just fine
  3. Compile it as an app and run it. Window opens but no video image displays

Other notes

  • Vuo version: 2.0.2
  • macOS version: macOS 10.15
  • How severely does this bug affect you? It prevents me from completing a specific task with Vuo.

I think it is a compile error when the mouseMoves2 and a video and window are all together. All other video and window combinations compile and play properly.

I have had a lot of problems with mouseMoves2 and skimming long movies as well (1 hour). Attempting to skim it the entire app hangs for minutes at a time, moves a little bit, and hangs again.


The problem with SkimMovie is that the node that inputs the movie isn’t a Play Movie node. It’s a Share Value node. The Vuo app exporter doesn’t know that it should include the movie. The workaround is to export the app, then copy chess.nov into the app bundle > Contents > Resources.

We have accepted your bug report on the performance of Decode Movie Image in the Skim Movie example composition. At this time, it’s not scheduled for a specific release.

We’re marking this a “Not a bug.”
