ScriptPanel and plugin parameter
There's something I don't understand here.
All my controls (except three) are script panels. They have a
But none of them shows up in the DAW except the 3 script sliders.
Tested AU/VST/AAX in Ableton and ProTools
Does it mean using a script knob in parallel is mandatory or is it a bug no one ever noticed
What do you mean by in parallel?
@d-healey A while ago, @Christoph-Hart told me it's easier to place a ghost knob in your script panel with an empty filmstrip, so instead of using a mouse CB, it's in fact the knob that is used. Then you update the panel with the normalized value.
It's cool for dealing with different ranges of values (freq, gain, %,...), and the parameters are visible in DAWs
But in my case it's not the solution I retained (except for 3 knobs) because everything is scriptnode made, so parameters are 0-1 based. The drawback now is that I don't see them in DAWs which is awkward...
If it's normal behavior then I need to go back to the ghost knob solution
That's what Christoph have done in Hexeract
Oh I don't know anything about scriptnode so it could be a bug.
@d-healey no no, it has nothing to do with scriptnode
I am just talking about the main interface parameters
Behind the scene, they are controlling scriptnode but it could have been modules...
@ustk Ok, so what do you mean by "using a script knob in parallel" ? Does this mean the invisible knob technique?
@d-healey That's what the technique I described above is all about ;)
The knob becomes the main UI control, the script panel is just here for display purpose
I said parallel but it might not be the good term, I prefer ghost now... Can I change?
Just want to add that in this scenario the knob holds the midi learn and plugin parameter...
I've used that technique too, so it should work. Do you have a minimal example snippet?
@d-healey I'm not in front of my computer...
But I know this technique works, I just don't understand why it doesn't when using a panel alone. It's invisible for the DAW...
@ustk That's why I'm waiting so much for slider lookAndFeel function. If I modify all my parameters now I will have to do it again knowing that my plugin is 98% done...
With this slider LAF, no more panel will be needed! That would be a killer...
