Cut Text crashes composition with negative start positions

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. Add Cut Text
  2. add negative Start Position
  3. Connect to Fire On Start
  4. Run
  5. See VuoCompositionLoader crashing

How did the result differ from what you expected?

I wanted to cut a text counting from the end.

When did you first notice this bug?


Have you found a workaround?

Thanks for reporting this. We’ll work on getting it fixed.

Fixed in Vuo 1.1 — certain negative Start values no longer cause the composition to crash. In the future we plan to add the ability to change the anchor point, to make it easier to cut relative to the end of a string.
