Hi there,
I am trying to figure out osc_receive node. It gets the data I send with osculator.
But the data sent to shapes creates errors like "argument type mismatch" oder a JavaClassCast Exception.
Is there a tutorial on how to setup the osc_receive node? Do I need ot change the settings in MetaData, and how?
any help would be highly appreciated.

    Hi Boris,

    I have never really used OSC, but if you search through the forums you can find several threads with tutorials and sample code. Here are three to start:




    That third one has some troubleshooting tips I wrote to an earlier poster. Please read through those and see if they help. If you're still stuck, send us another note.

    If you do get something working, please consider posting it in the Show Your Work forum. Maybe you can help create a tutorial for those who follow!
