Matrixctrl + pattr confusion.

    Dec 01 2008 | 6:00 pm
    what am i doing wrong here? i'm trying to hook up matrixctrl to pattr. but when i do it restricts it to 'one cell per column' which is not what i want. i want to be able to use as many cells as possible at the same time.

      I'm not sure exactly what is wrong with your example, but if you use autopattr, instead of individual pattr objects, the problem goes away.

      You have a feedback loop. Disconnect the connection between matrixctrl's outlet and pattr's inlet. The connection from pattr's central outlet is sufficient to create a two-way transfer between pattr and the attached object (there is, in fact, no data passed via that outlet -- it's just used to create a "bound" connection between the pattr and the object).

      good to know. that's cleared it up for me. thanks.
