Bone naming causes crash
« on: December 24, 2017, 06:10:50 am »

I have a little character model I've been working on for a few days (he's really cute and cool-looking! I'll post him soon). But in the Fig editor, if I name his head bone "head", it causes Anim8or to crash automatically.

I thankfully had an old save file I could look at to see the original names and changed the bone nameback to "bone02" in a text file which solved the issue, but still leaves it with generic names instead of something like "head" which would be easier for animation purposes.

edit: Okay, I locked some bones and saved, then tried changing the names of other bones and then it crashed again (before I could save it...), But for some reason the bone locking or something else is causing me to not be able to open the file, as it crashes every time I try.

Where a locked bones located in the text file format of an Anim8or file? Bones are easy to find, but I'm not finding where whether they are locked is denoted.

The licked attribute is stored within the bone's controller.

Can you post a figure that shows this crashing problem? And which bone's name do you try to change? I assume that this happens in the Figure editor.

I also have a similar problem. I rigged the model with the default name of the bones, and after that,  I animated it. to make the animation easier, I had to rename the bones. so I went back to figure mode and renamed the bones (e.g: bone06   -> leftArm). After that, I went back to scene mode to reanimate the model. the bones could not be able  to be renamed and also locked. so, i tried to unlock them but as soon as i unlocked them, the program just crashed.

Turns out it was in the old v1.0 build - the model seems to open just fine in the latest build you've posted, Steve, and that's WITH the bones I set as locked, but NOT with the new names. Hm..... (Sorry I haven't gotten around to properly posting it. Figured if I can't open, who else could?)

OK if you have further issues post a sample file and I'll look into it.
