Patching Marathon (Pt.x)

It turns out the builtin Iterator patch is ridiculously inefficient, necessitating this kind of nonsense to get decent performance-
64 identical macros.

You can see why I was anxious to develop a way of connecting all the controls inside each macro with a single cable…!

Each macro has one connection, and has to have one unique ID number set, so even with structure-based one-cable connection, it takes a good ten RSI-risking minutes or so to set all 64 up.

Hope Apple sort out the issues with the Iterator patch soon! Currently I get about twice the framerate doing things this way.

    wow, i don’t know what the output is, but the composition itself is worthy of praise! :P

    Heehee,

    cheers mate!
    I’m a bit anal about the layout of my comps.
    You can see some examples of the output in the ‘More Pseudospreads’ post.

    the iteraotr patch is the devil’s spawn. as i have repeatedly found out, cursed, coded custom plug-ins to get around, etc etc etc etc.

    and to make it worse, the whole idea is broken by design, ref vvvv’s spreadable nodes.

    …rant out…

    It’s a weird one… can’t work out why it’s so inefficient.
    I quite like the Iterator concept, in fact. It’s much easier to understand than spreads, I think, though probably less flexible.
