Multi touch panel doubt - using PB output like WD background

Postby ^nto » Sat Jul 21, 2018 4:46 pm

Hi to all,

I think that I'm loosing something during my studyes and tests.

I want to produce a Touch panel for a museum, using PB to make some media transitions effects and WD to controll all the multi thouch table with some automations like events or standby time.

PREMISE: I don't have a multitouch panel or display and I'm just studyng the multi touch tool.

I don't understand how to use the PB output like background of the multi touch areas.
In PB I wanna use a video layer for background and a graphic layer with some buttons (touch areas), clicking them I wanna have the conresponding media enlargement.

Thanks a lot for some help!

Hi,

please find information about the multitouch panel here:
https://www.coolux.de/root/downloads/su ... itouch.htm

The multitouch panel is about moving layer around. For me, it sounds like you are looking for something different. Maybe try using the "Is In Bounding Box" Filter Node. You can read out incoming touch data and trigger events. Or, if you can use incoming touch data as a mouse, you can place buttons at the same locations in WD where you touch your PB layers.

Hopefully helpful, cheers

Hi,

I often use another way to handle touchdata:

For this solution you need to connect your touchdevice with the PandorasBox PC instead the Widget PC.

Here you can find a description how to set up everything:
https://www.coolux.de/root/downloads/su ... g_mode.htm

I like this way, because it doesn't matter where you place your buttons in PandorasBox, even if they are moving around you always get the information if one button is hit.
But mind alpha areas in your pictures, Pandora will recognize a hit even if you touch a transparent part.


cheers

Hi!
Thanks for replyes!

Dear Thomas,

The multitouch panel is about moving layer around. For me, it sounds like you are looking for something different. Maybe try using the "Is In Bounding Box" Filter Node. You can read out incoming touch data and trigger events. Or, if you can use incoming touch data as a mouse, you can place buttons at the same locations in WD where you touch your PB layers.


I've tried the multitouch panel and work fine (triggered with mouse), my interest is to have an interactive panel shown to the client, with multitouch panel I can trigger events but with the WD panel where I can personalize with a static backround for each page and with personalized Custom script button images (this is what I understand, if wrong... please correct me :P).

During this days I've tested the "PICKING MODE" told by Alex.

It work fine with an offline Player using mouse triggers on Preview tab, and I understand that using a multitouch display on the Player I can show my graphic composition on output (client can see all the graphic work) and with multitouch display I will be able to trigger WD and Nodes.

In this way I can have a personalized interactive interface, that works with all the PB graphic potentials (playing videos on click, back and forward image, fade between shown images, etc...) ant that was I'm searching for.

Now... I'll work to produce this interface.

If you have other suggestions, please write me! :)
