Mouse deltas not 0

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. The “Receive Mouse Delta” output is not zero when mouse isn’t moving.
  2. There is a note to this effect in the documentation for the node, but it only refers to when the pointer is on the edge of the screen.
  3. It is a small floating point value if linked to a window, ±1 on x or y or both when not linked to a window.

Other notes

  • Vuo version: 2.2.1
  • macOS version: macOS 11
  • CPU: x86_64
  • How severely does this bug affect you? It’s annoying but I can work around it.

Actually the “residual” can be much greater than ± 1 pixel, up to 6 is possible.
Is there a way around this?

The output of Receive Mouse Deltas retains the information of the last move in Vuo coordinates. When I pre-position the mouse before a composition starts, I get the expected output of 0,0. Are you seeing something different?

(If you want the current position of the mouse, you could periodically check it using Check Mouse Status. )

We’ll review the documentation to see if we clarify the expected output of this node.
