Mira: More objects supported soon?

July 12, 2013 | 2:53 am

Hello All,
First, congratulations to the C74 team for making Mira!
I can confirm [mira.frame] works well in bpatchers!

Some comments:
– Could you make something like a "mira.subframe"? this thing could be resizable in any ratio, inside an iPad ratio [mira.frame]…
– I would be really pleased to see more "regular" C74 objects supported: [tab], [textbutton], [nodes], [incdec], [umenu]… For me, these objects are often better than M4L ones since they have an "idle" output…
– Can we imagine an "exclude from Mira" option on Mira objects?

Completely agree! A few other objects that would be nice to see as well would be Function and Filtergraph! I wonder if C74 can give us a little preview list of objects to be supported in the next few incremental updates?

@ph_m Interesting… How do you see mira.subframe working? And how do you think exclude from Mira should/could work, assuming we can’t actually add an "Exclude From Mira" attribute to all mira supported objects?

Also, as far as "Exclude From Mira" is concerned, have you tried using presentation mode? You can configure Mira so that it always displays objects as they would appear in presentation mode (patching vs. presentation vs. linked).

Hi Sam!

Personally I would see mira.subframe working in a similar way to using a bpatcher when you send it offset messages triggered by a tab object. Maybe we could say that if you have a mira.frame object in a bpatcher and that bpatcher is then placed on top of another mira.frame it would automatically become a subframe?

Love your videos by the way.

Sub-frame: The idea of the sub-frame is to put objects on a portion of the iPad, say, on the whole width but not on the whole height.

Exclude: in my patches, I use the ability of Max UI objects to have transparent background… showing other UI objects placed below. the upper UI object should be visible in Mira, but not the lower one… But on the Mac, all of them are visible and in presentation mode.
I am going to take a snapshot to explain since my english is not good enough to explain ;-)

I need a pic ctrl object in Mira, any chance of that?

@thomaspeters – I’m using fpic + mira.multitouch in place of pic ctrl, but it would be nice to just use pic ctrl for sure!

Hi Sam,

First of all thank you so much for Mira, it’s truly a powerful tool.

Assuming you are not getting paid millions of dollars for development, I will in all humbleness ask if you know if there will be future updates for object supports (e.g. suggested from the people before me), and in particular, do you know if it will be possible to place a batcher on top a mira.frame, and mira.frame reads the contents of the bpatcher? It would be really helpful in terms of making object-oriented UI programming. :)

Have a good day!

In regards to using the ‘moving bPatcher content around’, there is a little workaround using [thispatcher].
