Here’s an odd one, demonstrated in the attached scene. Steps to reproduce:
Open attached toe file and see the chain of ConstantCHOP → BindCHOP → sliderHorz
Export chan1 from the BindCHOP to the Value0 par on the sliderHorz
Set the value to 0 or 1, either by updating on the widget parameters page or by updating the value from the ConstantCHOP; notice both the Bind and the widget are now constantly cooking
Change the value to anything between 0 and 1; notice the constant cooking has stopped
Tested in Windows Build 2021.11180 and Mac 2020.44250
Not sure if this is caused by the BindCHOP or by the sliderHorz widget – on the one hand, the issue does not appear when export-binding to a ConstantCHOP, but I also see no constant cooking when the widget Value0 is set to 0 or 1 without binding.
I believe this may be related to a big performance hit I’m seeing when binding widget values to a BindCHOP connected to MIDI signal – whenever I twist a knob on my controller, I’m dropping ~20 frames (this apparently doesn’t happen if the widget isn’t rendered on screen). Any red flags in that setup which I may be overlooking?
Thank you! I turned off the field and indeed constant cooking has stopped and my framerate is back to 60
It would of course be nice to have to have the field available for precisely entering values, but this will get me where I need to be for now. Looking forward to further updates on widgets, thanks again for your help!
