Steps causing the bug to occur
- Create Composition with file path (such as an image)
- Save Composition
- Make Composition into Vuo Node from “file make node”
- Node & Composition no longer loads resources from the file paths
How did the result differ from what you expected?
I would expect the file paths to be updated when moved into the modules folder, or alternatively resources to be copied into the modules folder. (Possibly Packaged in a folder named after the node to keep everything together?)
Have you found a workaround?
Manually changing the file path of the resource (or dragging and dropping the same resource back into the editor)
- Vuo version: 1.2.0
- macOS version: OS X 10.9
I would expect the file paths to be updated when moved into the modules folder, or alternatively resources to be copied into the modules folder.
Yes, we’re planning for the editor to give you the option to copy files into the Modules folder, then update the relative paths accordingly. This bug report covers that.

There’s a feature request for that: Ability to bundle resources (images, movies, other files) along with a composition
What if it packaged them in some kind of file wrapper that had the composition and the folder with the graphics and other resources inside kind of like how apps have “Show package contents”. then is would remain as one file that can easily be moved and shared and could be edited if required.
