View Full Version : [SUGGESTION][TRACK EDITOR][OBJECT ARRAYS][DATA SOURCES] Pull data from arrays

If an object array has data sources within it, the object getter tool should not only
be able to represent those data sources as a target to modify, but also as a
target to pull data from.

Example: currently in Fusion, you can connect variable data sources
in an array, then use a set value event to set their value through an object getter.

After doing that, you currently cannot use an object getter to then read
the values within the variable data sources, by trying to use a
different data source or set value event, that gets it's value from the object getter.

Side note: Hello Keeba :), sorry if I overloaded you with work from having to go through so many suggestions.
Once the ideas start rolling, it starts more ideas and it's hard to stop. :D

if i remember correctly you can already do that with the object pointer

I tried both the object pointer, and object array/getter as I wrote this thread
and this is not the case; it will not let you select those tools as value objects (xbox 1).

just tested it. you can get it to work with vectors (see screenshot)

can we agree that we need a "copy value" event? ;)

Just tried a similar set up to the screenshot, and can confirm that copy vector event does work
when trying to pull data from both object pointers and object arrays/getters.

What doesn't work however, is set vector events when the (data) target is a vector within
an array or pointer, or set value event when the (data) target is a variable data source within
an array or pointer, which was what inspired this thread.

Nor can vectors pull data from other vectors within arrays/pointers,
and neither can variables pull data from other variables within arrays/pointers.

Hmm... A copy value event... Wouldn't that just be the equivalent of a set value event
that gets it's value from the desired source?
