Ability for text module to receive filename string

Tue Apr 06, 2021 2:45 am

There have been a couple occasions where I would like to burn in the name of the 'media' playing back on the screen. It would be nice if the Text module had an input to receive the filename. This can be used for creative purposes or to simply help keep track of what is happening and make communication easier when sharing with creative partners/clients. It would also easier to read than the small truncated filename input on the modules.

For example:
1. Video folder > connects to > Text module
2. Filename is passed to Text module (with or without extension)
3. Name of video playing back appears on screen

The connection between modules is for graphics only. That is a principal feature of Magic.

In the future it is possible that we will add some other way for the Text module to receive strings, such as with OSC.
