Re: UI Request: Hide other areas?

I tried that, but couldn't grab them. Now that I know that it should work, I'll try again.

Re: Text on the stage?

This forum needs a +1 feature or a Like button!
  • Plain text would be fine.
  • Multiple pages would be terrific!

Re: Extension for manipulating sound samples

FYI: Here's the latest version of the extension, which includes a block to set the costume from the samples, in order to see the waveform.

Re: 1 Bit Sound, or, how to make an extension block from a blocks script

I wanted to see how hard it was to go from blocks into an extension, so I tried it with the sound display code. It really wasn't hard at all! Here's my original script, and the new block that I created. set-costume-from.png I converted the script to text, then copy-pasted it into my samples extensio...

UI Request: Hide other areas?

The Present button lets me hide everything but the stage, which is great. But I can imagine situations where I *just* want the scripting area and the blocks pane. (I'm not sure if I'm using the canonical names for these areas.) For example, I could imagine having a powerful enough set of blocks (e.g...

Text on the stage?

I'd like to be able to do active essays in GP (e.g., http://www.vpri.org/pdf/tr2009002_active_essays.pdf ). Are there plans to be able to display text on the stage? I imagine that that's necessary for many kinds of applications. There is a GP block to draw text on the stage, but it's not going to wo...

Re: 1 Bit Sound

I'll try the Quicktime recorder -- thanks! An item for the wishlist: I now have this script that can (crudely) let me see a waveform. I'd love to be able to encapsulate this script in a block that I could put into the block pane -- across projects. There are lots of places where I'd like to be able ...

Variables become Reporters that don't work [FIXED]

This is a replicable process for generating the bug: Create a variable, say fred Drag fred from the Variables pane into the Scripting pane. The variable is orange and you can click on it to see the variable's value. Save the project Re-open the project. Now the fred variable is blue in the scripting...

Re: 1 Bit-per-sample Sound - now with display

The 1-bit-per-sample sound story works better if you can see the sound, so I put together a simple sound visualization script. Here's the original "this is a test" sound. thisisatest.png Here's the 1 bit per sample version. 1-bit-sound.png Side note: I'd love a "video" format where I could record th...

1 Bit Sound

This one involves a little bit of block-dragging to get the full effect. (1) Drag the get samples from thisisatest into the "array" slot of the play samples from block, connected to "Go." Press Go. That's our original sound. (2) Drag the getSamples block out and click on it. Notice that what's insid...
