Actually, I think my confusion comes from the fact I’m confused with channels.
A channel here seems to be a flow of values.
Generators can generate multiple channels.
If I freeze time, at a particular frame-step, my generators generates (and pop out) for instance 2 values (if it gives 2 channels). Ok.
Everything here is time-wise.
So the combine doesn’t make sense because if I wanted to have two values at each frame turn, I’d “just” need an operator that creates (and/or process) 2 channels, and I’d have my two values, end of story.
Am I right ?
I feel that because I checked Join, Fan, Combine etc and I was expecting something like:
I have a generator generating 1 channel, another one generating 1 channel, I join them and it gives 2 channels… wrong. Join, as far as I understand, take for instance 2 channels, and append a set of values of the first to the other, time-wise… one set after the other etc. With many different ways options to do that.
gosh. this is not reverse back my understanding of Max, but extending it to very different concepts.
