Gives a list of all files in a folder.
Folder— The path or link to a folder on the computer running the composition. If this is left blank, then the folder that contains the composition is used.
Include Subfolders— If true, any folders inside of
Folder(and any folders inside of them, and so on) are checked for files. If false, this node will only output the files in the top level of
File Type— The kind of files to search for.
Files— The files found, in case-sensitive lexicographic order — file names that start with numbers are first, followed by ones that start with uppercase letters, followed by ones that start with lowercase letters. Hidden files (those that start with “.”) are not included.
The easiest way to set
Folder (if not leaving it blank) is to drag the folder from Finder onto the constant flag next to the port.
Folder can be either a path or a
file:// URL. Examples:
Images(for a folder called “images” in the same folder as the composition)
images/nature(for a folder called “nature” in a folder called “images” in the same folder as the composition)
If the folder’s location doesn’t start with
/, then it’s treated as a relative path. This is the option you’d typically want when sharing the composition with others. If running the composition on a different computer than it was created on, the folder needs to exist in the same location relative to the composition (
.vuo) file. If running an application exported from the composition, the folder needs to exist in the
Contents/Resources folder inside the application package; see the Vuo Manual for details.
If the folder’s location starts with
/, then it’s treated as an absolute path. If running the composition on a different computer than it was created on, the folder needs to exist in the same location on that computer.
