Hi - I’m creating a component that uses some binary neural network files to analyze images. I discovered the Virtual File System palette entry today and thought it would help reduce external dependencies. Right on!
But… looks like my Python code can’t interpret the paths to the embedded files as I’d hoped.
If I access the virtual file’s path as the docs say, for example:
proto_path = op('virtualFile_face_nn/out1')[0,0]
I get paths like:
When I try to open this path with Python, like
, it throws a FileNotFound error.
Is there any way to access either A) an actual file path for the virtual file, or B) the content of that file? Or do these virtual files need to be ingested only by TouchDesigner nodes?
