Lockup when using Find Faces in Image Node

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. Place a Find Faces in Imagenode into a composition
  2. Run the composition
  3. Force Exit Vuo when done watching spinning beach ball. ;)

Have you found a workaround?

Yes, oddly enough when you export the composition as an App it works as it should. it only locks the system when running the node from the editor.

Other notes

  • Vuo version: 2.4.0
  • macOS version: macOS 12
  • How severely does this bug affect you? It’s annoying but I can work around it.

I can’t honestly say how far back this issue goes as I have only run this node in y Christmas Tree composition back in Dec 2019 under Mac OS Catalina. Since then the only work on the composition was on the images I used and adding a couple of hold nodes which I never tried to run from the editor I just exported it and tested the App itself. I’m have since upgraded my OS twice and several versions of Vuo have come out as well. It’s interesting that the node works fine when embedded in an exported app.

We’ve reproduced this and should have a fix in the next release.

Fixed in Vuo 2.4.1.
