Tagged: bug resize image QC
July 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm #6239
I have a QC comp sending a 4:3 image with Syphon Server patch and another comp using Client to receive it. Based on sample comps. When I resize the Server image (either by resizing the Viewer window using OpenGL mode or increasing the Pixel Dimensions of Render in Image patch using image input) I find the receiver comp falls over. It drops the image outputting blank and when I restart the comp I get that double–the size-it-should-be-bug on the billboard people might be familiar with.
I can post comps if that helps but there’s very little going on. I haven’t been on these forums for a few months and missed the initial Syphon gold-rush so not sure if this is a known issue or not.
Also noticed that when Syphon is serving an image from a QC Comp using a feed from an Render in Image patch to it’s image input and the view is resized (smaller or larger) it will knock over the comp receiving the image. This is a big problem for me as I need to able to adjust my composition viewing window. I tried disabling a billboard that displayed the Render in Image Output that is sent to the Syphon Server patch but it didn’t help.

I’m on 10.7.4 Kineme Plugins only installed.July 30, 2012 at 10:32 pm #6243
Post comps please, and what to do to trigger the issue.July 31, 2012 at 1:41 am #6245
Okay will reduce Server comp as much as I can first.July 31, 2012 at 3:06 am #6247
I can reproduce most of this, we’re investigating. In the meantime, if you’re able to fix the pixel dimensions of your RII patch, that should at least avoid the problem.July 31, 2012 at 3:10 am #6248
Oh thanks wont reduce comp then. Yes I’ve found with locked off dimension and using image input I’m sweet. I just took it up to 1280×960 and shrinking the Viewer window to small sizes like 360px is not breaking Client comp viewer window now. 🙂
That double-the-size-it-should-be bug always scares me though in other plugins and if it wasn’t you two dev’s I’d be banishing the plugin for a while 😉

Hrm – I can’t re-create this here.
Resizing the Servers viewer seems ok with both GL and Image input, client always outputs an image – but I do get some occasional visual garbage if using OpenGL mode and resizing quickly.August 1, 2012 at 5:27 am #6254
That demo falls over here when I resize the Server Comp view window. Client just shows a blank.August 1, 2012 at 9:02 am #6255
I still cannot reproduce here, but @bangnoise can. What computer, OS, and GPU do you have?August 1, 2012 at 7:30 pm #6256
MBP 8,3 17″ 2.2 Ghz i7
AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1GB
sent you a system report via emailAugust 2, 2012 at 1:46 pm #6260
Thanks. Bangnoise and I took a look at this, and think we nixed the issue. Any chance you can try out this build and report back?
I realized I was testing a version with some changes, not the release (apologies for that) – and was able to re-create.
This linked build should have the fixes for your bug – as well as a fix so that when a Syphon Server is publishing an image that is disconnected, or is sent a “nil” image, it continues to send the last frame, and doesn’t “vanish” (a request from other users).
Please let us know how this works for you, and thanks for finding and reporting the bug.August 2, 2012 at 1:46 pm #6261
Just as a note, this is marked as Beta 2 Release 2 (in get info), so you know what the versions are. Thanks.August 3, 2012 at 6:31 pm #6264
I tried your demo comps using Syphon public beta r2 and it still falls over in Client window when I re-size Server Viewer window. After that restarting the Viewer gives a double plus a Y-axis stretch in the Viewer. Not ever single time you resize Server but at certain unknown trigger points.

Can you check you don’t have two versions of the plugin installed and did install the version vade linked above? Check in /Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Plug-Ins and in your Home Folder/Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Plug-Ins.
I could reproduce the issue before and can’t with the version linked above.August 4, 2012 at 7:17 am #6267
Ooops I did update to r2 but must have forgotten to restart QC. This is rock&roll now (cool nice fix).August 4, 2012 at 9:53 am #6268
Cool, thanks for verifying. We’ll get a new download up soon.
