OSX: over 20 GOP will freeze GUI - having to disable GOP stuff to be able to maintain usability of patch on purrdata
Hi, I've got over 20 GOP in my patch and unfortunately, at random intervals, the sliders will stop updating, same with array updates.. yet the sliders will do their work, it's just that the GUI dies. Toggles keep working, which is odd. So my solution currently is to just disable GOP stuff for anything that I might NOT be touching during the performance tonight.
Any ideas what I could do to help you guys fix this GOPpy behaviour?
8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 + 26 so 27+26 so uhh 53 GOPs running in this one. I'd love to add 2 more (testone~ o1 and testone~ o2), but they unfortunately have a abstraction inside both which also has GOP, so if I have a GOP inside a GOP, all GUI updates will start causing audio to stutter/drop out.
what is the ideal solution? I originally had the plom1-plom8 set up so that there was a subpatch in this main patch, with 8 GOPs, but having a subpatch displaying 8 GOP inside itself, also caused dropouts in audio.
I was happily doing the "let's disable GOP and then save for stuff that's not fully ultra needed", only to find out that after I quit PurrData, loading the script back had actually lost it's GOP settings (at least the coordinates), which I find to be ultra strange.
Since I do need to be able to perform tonight with a Gui that keeps on working, I'll experiment with disabling as many GOPs as possible, but try and remember not to save. I hope it'll work.
