Syncing two function-objects = weirdness?

June 20, 2010 | 3:10 pm

Hello,

I’ve encountered some weird behaviour when syncing two functions. Everything is fine and working when you keep adding new points to the original function. The problem starts when adjusting already set points to a new location. Then the "copy"-function adds new points instead of relocating the old points to the new location.
Ofcourse there is a workaround possible but i’m interested in the logical? reason behind this behaviour.

This is expected behaviour. When you send the "dump" message it will send out the locations of the current points, these will be added to the next function. It isn’t a copy method unfortunately. Your work-around in the patch is the way to go.

Ah well, although illogical, facts just have to be accepted sometimes i guess.
Thanks,
