mira multitouch object question

November 9, 2013 | 9:23 am

Is there a way to make the little ball that appears in the multitouch object remain visible after the touch? If not, might you add that? It would seem simple to do, since the code to draw the ball is already functional.

The usefulness of this should be obvious: if you can place your finger at the place it last was, then you can avoid abrupt leaps in parameter values. Can’t do that if you can’t see where you were.

Thanks.

i’d imagine it was simple to leave a ghost of the ball after the touch, however, the problem everyone would have (as it is a *multitouch* object) would be in placing the fingers back in the same ‘order’ ! so you’d still probably get jumps

try a simul-tri-touch, it is near impossible to get the same touch order !

if you want to use one finger then you might hack an untouchable overlay (updated with the output from touchpoint 1) over the top – unfortunately, as the quantity (& completeness) of gui objects supported is still small your options are restricted

a quick workaround of sorts below ! (uses un-clickable sliders overlaid to form crosshairs)
there may be better temporary solutions …

I wonder if someone from c74 (Sam!) could comment on when (if) we might have support for the other non Mira objects, so we don’t have to employ workarounds
