Hello, I am currently attempted to customize an existing max for live object and I am running into a road block I cannot seem to figure out.
If it is relevant, the patch I am attempting to tweak is the Covert Cperators Snapshot Morpher patch.
The knobs in the patch can be controlled in two ways, either by twiddling the knob itself, or by using an xy table that morphs between snapshots of saved settings of the knobs. When Morph mode is activated, you cannot directing turn the knobs, I successfully deactivated this feature and now have half of what my goal is- to be able to turn the knobs or morph between their saved values at the same time
BUT I cannot seem to figure out this next part
Something in the patch is preventing automation data associated with the knobs from being read. No matter how many times I press the 'back to arrangment' button, I still end up with the automation sputtering in and out of being active and being greyed out however I cannot seem to figure out what is the root of this. I have traced the patch backwards and am still confused what could be telling Live to deactivate automation for a given parameter and then suddenly reactivate it.
What objects/commands could be triggering such a reaction? Which max for live objects are capable of communicating to live 'disable automation for dial 3' 'now enable automation for dial 3'.
If it is at all relevant, here is an image of the inside of the patcher where I believe something is communicating with Live to disable automation
