Controller disappears from scene time track
« on: August 05, 2020, 06:03:22 am »

On build 1387 (and others)

Hi Steve,  I've found a minor issue.  Create figure with 1 bone, add to a scene, create a key on bone-y,  double click the key and delete it from the dialog, the controller disappears.  Closing and re-opening the project restores it.

While I'm being picky :)

Same figure with an expression on the bone Y orientation but no other keys in the scene - the expression(s) are not saved, the first time I found this I lost the figure from the scene as well, when I try to re-create I just loose the expressions on the bones. If I add a position key it saves everything.

My second post - either I've forgotten something or this is more serious;  I can't save expressions to the anim8or file.

I've got a single multi-bone figure in my scene and I'm testing out expressions on the bone angles.  Every time I save close reopen, all the expressions are lost.  I went back to v1.00, same.  I went back to v0.98 and it saves the expressions OK.

Thanks, AlecJames, I'll definitely fix these problems!

#101-042 - Controller disappears when deleting only key from bone axis.
#101-043 - Bone axis expressions aren't saved to project file.

AlecJames can you try build 1390 to see if it fixes these problems? If not, I need an example (simple if possible :) )that I can debug.

Thanks!

Hi Steve,

I made a demo video showing the problems:



Thanks for the hard work :)

Don't know what I was doing before but I can reproduce both issues following your example. I'll have this fixed as soon as I can!

Thanks for the bug report!!!!

#101-043 - Bone axis expressions aren't saved to project file.

This is definitely a bug but it's been in Anim8or for a while. If you do this in Rotate Bone mode then it works properly. Clicking on a bone opens the X-axis controller and when you're done there are controllers for all 3 axis with a script for the X-axiz. But if you click on the time track to add the script controller, then it's not saved.

I was adding the controller the way it works and so couldn't see the issue.

Stay tuned ... work in progress :)

AlecJames give build 1391 a try when you get a chance. I think it fixes both of these issues.

Hi Steve, just went back to this and found that when I assign an expression to a bone, save the file, close and reopen, the controller is no longer shown so I can't edit the expression.  Is there another way to get to it?

My bad - I found it, bone1-Z is at the and of the list (I was looking for it near bone1-x bone1-y)

Yes, for some reason the scripts cause the bones to be out of order. I'm looking into how to fix this.
