sort list/is less than performance with color data

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. use either node with color data
  2. sort is performed on r values, then b, then g, then b, then a
  3. the value of a vec4 is the length of the vec4. not being able to sort by vec length/intensity is aberrant.

Have you found a workaround?


Other notes

  • How severely does this bug affect you? It prevents me from using Vuo at all.

In Vuo, you can convert your colors to points using a Get * Color Values node and then use the Sort Points node set, which covers sorting by any individual component or by magnitude.
