OSC via Milliplug to Quarts Composer effects?
edited February 2014
i'm trying to use Milliplug to send OSC from Max to paramters of my quartz composer effects on a millumin layer.
here's how i have things set up:

but it doesn't seem to work.
First of all, you change param1 (blending) for "/1/record" and param7 (record) for "/2/record" : it doesn't seem right.
Secondly, be sure you send the right value : "0" to stop recording, and "1" to start recording. Use the gear-icon and set up both the min and max values to "0" or to "1", if you want a separate OSC message to start or stop recording.
At last, if you use OSC in Max, why using MilluPlug ? You should use directly OSC messages for Millumin.
For example : "/millumin/layer/effect1/param7/0 1.0" (for more information, see
the direct from max solution is working.
the GUI in millumin for the effects does NOT update; this was making it difficult to tell if thing were working.
on the other hand, i find layer numbering to be confusing; what happens if i take the default "layer 1" and rename it "layer 2", and then make a new layer? are the OSC layer numbers always the original creation order layers?
here's a followup question:
how can i address my quartz composer parameters with OSC if the QC composition is placed in the layer in the board as opposed to being used as an effect; here's what i mean:

I see now; there was an error in the
, under "If the media is a Quartz patch, you can control the parameters :"
it should say
so all better now.
Ok, I updated the OSC doc.
To reply to to your 2 other questions :
- for performance reasons, the GUI of the Quartz effects does not update in real time (when changing a parameter via OSC)
- you can display the layer numbering by check the option in Preferences/Board
