[MAX5] buildcollective


    Jun 24 2008 | 2:55 pm
    hi all.
    i have troubles sending buildcollective to max5, it drops the error:
    buildcollective: location test.mxf does not exist
    thats what i pass to max (worked fine in max4.6):
    1.
    ;
    max openfile thefile patch.maxpat
    2.
    ;
    max buildcollective thefile test.mxf
    i also tried to use an absolute path for the output-file... same error.
    whats wrong there?
    thanks for help.

      again...
      figured out that the buildcollective-message works without passing an outfile.
      here is a test-situation for the buildcollective issue:
      this is just some patch (save it as apatch.maxpat):
      here is the patch to build a collective with the buildcollective-message to max (save it in the same folder than the apatch-file):
      can anybody verify this problem?
      tested here on: max5.0.2
      ppc-mac: os 10.4.11
      thx

      I can confirm. MBP 2.16, 10.5.3, build 35560. I get this error:
      buildcollective: location test.mxf does not exist
      Specifying a filepath for test.mxf doesn't improve things.

      Thanks for catching this. I can reproduce, we will be taking a look at it.
      All the best,
