Dynamic text

after having read this page :
I tried to use Chataigne (great tool) :
to send an OSC message to Millumin in order to display texts

I used the message "/myLayer/currentMedia/fullText" to update the text without success.
in Chataigne I add a string argument (the text to disply) to this message but not working.

Any advice ?


  • Hello,

    Are you sure that the name of your layer is : "MyLayer" ?

    Good luck
  • Hello @Alain,

    Be sure to use the latest beta : this is a really new feature.
    However, the beta will be soon launched as the official version.

    If the problem persists, try with the example we provided in the tutorial (Processing).

  • Hello,
    I tested with Millumin 3,12,o and it's working with Chataigne like this :

    - In Chataigne custom message "/Layer/currentMedia/fullText" and a string argument with the text to display
    - as Manouche35 suggests, the layer name must obviously be the same in the message and in Millumin

    Next step :
    It would be nice to set others parameters (like font size, font, alignement, line spacing...) this way (OSC and Chataigne) too !

    How to find their OSC adresses ?

    Thanks !
  • Hello @Alain,

    You can control more parameters :
    - /layer/currentMedia/fontSize
    - /layer/currentMedia/alignment
    - /layer/currentMedia/lineSpacing

    More info on OSC documentation.
    The font-name cannot be changed via OSC.

    Best. Philippe
  • Thanks,
    I will test this asap.
