Editor: When a Discard Data from Event (dataAndEvent -> event) node is collapsed and attached to an input port, it covers up the input port's constant flag.

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. When you add a Data From Event node to your composition and hook it up, the Editor collapses it for you.
  2. The collapsed type converter covers the input port’s constant flag, where you would ordinarily add data.

How did the result differ from what you expected?

Did not expect collapsed type converter to cover input port.

We fixed this in Vuo 0.9 — you can now create event-only cables, so it’s no longer necessary to use the Discard Data from Event type converter.
