Here's the first (vital) operation in a modification I'm trying to add to a lighting sequencer. The on/off RGB states are stored in a matrix ctrl, which is stepped through using a metro.
I want to be able to quickly modify an existing matrixctrl by moving the existing on points either up, down, forwards or backwards. But I'm having a problem with the [zl group] that I'm using to gather the matrixctrl output into a single list. Despite setting the max zl list length to 1024 ( [zl 1024 group] ) and sending the output of the matrixctrl (64*3 * 3 items per point) to [zl group 576], I still can't get a single list. What gives?
(The reason I want a single list is that I want to temporarily store the list in an Lbuf (LObjects - temporarily store list (tho" i don't know if _that'lll cope with such a long list)), so that I can clear the matrixctrl before i modify the list and send it back to the matrixctrl.)
Here's an illustration..
