Did a minor performance last weekend, wherein one of the things I tried was to:
a. launch a messy conglomeration of patches
b. *drop-down the Pd window*, to shift over to Midivid for awhile to play out some images *via projector*
Which is all something I have done before.
This time though, when I brought up the Pd window, everything in my "patch" was sort scrunched up towards the upper left-hand side of the screen,.. and absolutely frozen in regard to being able to bang or tweak anything, even though the whole mess kept on playing just fine.
I'm pretty sure that this had to do with the projector, probably in combination with my dropping-down the Pd window.
But of course, if possible, I'd love to know precisely what the problem might have been.
Any ideas / guidance?
Windows XP + Pd version 0.40.3-extended-20080721
For the record: the rest of the performance went off great, including a wee bit of jiggery-pokery with Marco Donnarumma's lovely C::NTR::L, which worked like a charm.
Keep well all ~ Shankar
