"wireless" value transmission
I had the idea of being able to send values without having to connect actors.perhaps numbered transmitters / receivers actors that communicate themselves from thefact that they have the same number.for example.transmitter nº1 sends value to receiver nº1transmitter nº2 sends value to receiver nº2etcIs this possible or already exists?
you can use the "broadcast" and "listener" actors.
oh... it is so beautifull to work under this circumstances!
If you are interested my video mixer (syst3m) is built using broadcast and listen actors as a way to may UI route-able patches.
I find that making user actors with this built in makes them very easy to work with and portable to other projects.
amazing. I´ve seen that they dont only transmit values, but also, audio, video, etc...does somebody know if transmitting video thru broadcaster and listener is actually heavier for the processor / ram / gpu than transmitting with a cable?
I don't think it is but Mark could speak with more authority.
Dear Camilozk,There is only a tiny, tiny penalty for using Broadcaster/Listener as compared to a normal link for any kind of value, including video.Best Wishes,Mark
