Opinions Please: Limit-Scale Value - Kill auto update of 'output' limits?



  • Dear All,

    I am soliciting some opinions on the Limit-Scale Value actor. As many of you know, this actor automatically updates the 'limit min' and 'limit max' for its output when you change the 'out min' and 'out max' inputs. I thought this was a good idea at the time I did it 8 or 9 years ago, but as time has worn on I think this feature -- which is pretty much unique among Isadora actors -- has caused more confusion than anything else, especially since it happens behind the scenes.
    My current feeling is that I should kill this feature -- and just let the user decide when to set the 'limit min' and 'limit max' via the inspector.
    Does anyone have a strong opinion against the idea of removing the 'auto update' feature in Limit-Scale Value?
    Best Wishes,
    Mark

    It might be best to have all actors behaving the same, even if it ads a step to the setup.
    When first learning Izzy, its the scaling and 'hidden' min/max settings that are most difficult.
    A universal behavior will make this easier for all.



  • I love limit scale as much as I don't understand it.

    Let me explain with image and comments.
    P.S. the image seems to appear trucated. Please tell me if you don't see the 4 examples.
