Input.Width simple expressions not working in Fusion 9

PostFri Feb 02, 2018 2:43 pm

Input.Width and Input.Height don't seem to work in Fusion 9 anymore.

Every time I try to switch from 7 to 9 I always immediately run into something that has been removed, changed without mention (because complete release notes are for suckers it seems), is broken, or down right doesn't work anymore.

I did figure out a workaround (just add the name of the node itself, why was this behaviour added? why was this changed? Why can't the expression engine figure out that when I don't enter a node by name it should operate on the instance of the node the expression is running on? You know, like it used to since the day simple expressions where introduced years ago.)

Ah well...just another one of the many MANY reasons we still use Fu7 in production instead of Fu9.

dont know if it was mentioned in some documentation but the new magic word is:

Code: Select all

this references to the tool itself and saves some typing

dont know why it was changed, but i guess it has something to do with the new GUI system (which is now QT based)
