Op reference as file name for filein dat.

Op reference as file name for filein dat.

Postby _0203 » Fri Aug 03, 2018 2:10 pm

Hi,

Is it possible to use a reference to another op in the filein DAT's file field?

It doesn't seem to work for me. Currently using the ref op('selectedrow8')[1,'path'], but it gives me a file not found error.

Works just fine w/ a movie file in TOP.

Thanks for any help!

Is the file parameter in expression mode? ie. is the 'blue box' turned on and the field dark with blue text? If not it will just be in regular mode and will not evaluate the string entered as a python expression.
