I'm a newbie. Receiving data via OSC, I can see it stream into MAX as a Message, but I cannot get this same data to act as a value and drive effects such as crossfades between video. Any help would be appreciated.
If you're getting numbers in, and Max is treating them as symbols, you could look to [fromsymbol]. See if the numbers coming out of [fromsymbol] go into a number box without an error, and if so, you're all set.
We are using EYECON to send data to MAX which we receive with udpreceive. we think this data is an osc message.
We see some floating numbers in the object message which we connected to the output of udpreceive. Does the message object just send out whatever data type it gets (osc)? Ideas on handling this? Ideas of things to try?
When we connect the output of udpreceive to flonum we get this error message: flonum doesn't understand ""
