Encapsulation troubles.

April 29, 2011 | 2:20 pm

For some reason when I encapsulate a sub patch the inlets and outlets still show up connected to the encapsulated object with the patch chords still visible as well.

Is there an extra step I’m missing?

Need more info. Steps to reproduce?

I was putting together a dry wet control, I’m in the learning stages at the moment so I’m not too familiar with all of this, and I was going to encapsulate it. I had two outlets connected to two +~ objects which connected to some *~ objects son on so forth…and then five inlets connecting to other objects. I highlighted everything and hit encapsulate. Everything but the inlets and outlets encapsulated. So it was just an encapsulated object with all the wires showing that were connecting to the inlets and outlets which were also showing.

and also, how do I get the inlets and outlets to be numbered. I’ve tried changing the name in the inspector but it doesn’t work.

Okay, problem is that the encapsulation takes care of inlets and outlets for you, just build the patch like you want it to function, select the ones you want and hit encapsulate. The inlets and outlets will be numbered.

I understand now. Just remove the inlets/outlets from the equation until it’s encapsulated then go in the sub patch and put the inlets/outlets in after. I got it working now thanks to your help. I appreciate it.

well…. yes but… lets say you had a dial connected to an object. When you encapsulate the object but not the dial the cable from the dial will go into the encapsulation to the object. If you open the bpatcher you’ll see it automatically created an inlet for you.
