Moving objets in TouchOSC
Moving an object in TouchOSC with OSCulator is quite simple.
button1 -> osc routing -> button2/position/x argument (100,200)
The button2 will pop up in one side and in the another
So far so good. But, Is it possible to visually show the movement? I mean, see when it slides from one point to another.
I tried with arguments such as [100-200] in a fader and things like that, but without success.
Thanks in advance.
I have no idea how you could do that in TouchOSC. It does not support animations, and OSCulator can not trigger messages from a timer...
I think this could be a nice feature request for TouchOSC.
Look at this: http://youtu.be/O3BzXmbXmck
In the facebook page the TouchOSC guy said: "This has been possible since v1.7.3 btw"
and in the youtube comment "I sent position values to TouchOSC from Processing and OscP5."
What do you think?
edit: maybe the time of movement can be done with a fader or rotary for example.

The answer is in the comment: the animation is made from OSC messages programmed in Processing.
What do you mean by "the time of movement"?
You could use a fader as the "time message", like a regular scrolling bar. When I move up the fader the button goes down and vice versa. And the speed of movement is determined by the speed of my finger moving the fader.
I made this splitting the fader in different messages and each message assigned to the position of an objet.
But I was wondering if this can be done in a simpler way, something like 0 to 127 (in a fader) = y 100 to 200 (in another objet) for example.
I have another question (I promise this is the last one xD)
I have 8 pages in TouchOSC and 8 presets OSCulator per page. In each one I have a button that sends a message to 0 via localhost to all objects on each page (something like an "switch off" per page). So far so good.
Now, on the first page I want to assign a button to send a message to 0 via localhost to every "switch off" in all pages. (something like a "master switch off") So, I did it in the same way as the others, but doesn't work.
You can't send this kind of messages through presets?
Sorry about the length of the message and I hope I explained well with my poor English.
All the best

I am really sorry but I don't see a solution to your question other than resetting every controls from the preset that is calling the reset message.
