Timeline WaitUntil only recognises the second OSC message?

0 votes

I ran into a strange issue with my Timeline. I built a simple foot controller that sends out OSC-messages "/foot1, i" "/foot2, i" etc.. according to the pedal pressed. Now that I tested it with a simple timeline, I found out that the first instance on WaitUntil's does not recognise the first "/foot1, 1" message. So I need to press the pedal twice in order for the Timeline to proceed. This only happens on the first WaitUntil and only after I have restarted the Timeline.


If I use the "ResumoOnZero" option in the WaitUntil, it works as expected, since the switch sends out a zero value as it is released, but I'm still curious on why this happens?

This is most likely due to the value of the foot switch controller in the selected preset.

By default, most controllers default to 0.5, which would be considered "on" to the WaitUntil condition.

Locate the controller in the timeline VCS, set it to zero and right-click to save the zero value in all presets.

Aaaah! Thanks a lot! What a simple solution! I did this today with my foot2 (controlling a VSC "rec button") but the foot1 is kind of "invisible" to the user, so it never occured to me!
