I do not attain to do that it work

Hello @bazza, I don’t think that node is supposed to work like that. The idea is a good one, of having a node that outputs text as an input for node that receives text.

Check the details available on the RunScript node here:

The documentation isn’t very detailed on how you could use for such a purpose, if it is at all possible.

I wished an image like input and ouput. I only probe also text

( #4

I did not understand the examples. It is something like this?:


convert rose: “[Project]/scriptoutput00001.png”

(Frédéric Devernay) #5

The script should be

convert rose: "$1"

and the parameter 1 in runscript should be a filename like [Project]/scriptoutput#####.png.

If you get it and think of a better way to explain it in the doc, please propose a better doc!

Please readthedocs:
You have to put a Read node after runscript to read back [Project]/scriptoutput#####.png

take a look at the file name parameter of your RunScript. [Project]/ appears twice
