No Geometry in new max instance
« on: November 23, 2015, 12:30:32 PM »
Hi,

This is a issue I'm facing for quite some time now, on different wrkstn with different projects and different railclone version, so I'm taking the time to point it out.

Most of the time, when I use railclone, it work great in the current max instance, but once I re-open the file, sometimes after one save, sometimes multiples once, I have railclone that wigs out and doesn't work anymore :



Problem is, once it's broken, I can't fix it, the only way tp get it back is to merge from a previous file where it worked, really annoying.

Any ideas on how to fix this?
Thanks

Hi, although we could not replicate this problem, i have an idea what would cause it.

The latest beta includes a fix for that. Hopefully it works as planned:

- Fixed potential corruption issue when save is not completed correctly.

Great.

If this can help, I can dig into my files and find the file before and after the RC is brocken and send them

I'll try the beta,
Thanks

It's not necessary, but thanks. One question: what do you get opening the Style Editor from the corrupted object ?

a) Style is empty. There is not any item.
b) Style seems correct, but Segments have not geometry.

B) seems correct :




Here is the max file with just the Railclone and the spline :

Hope this helps

I haven't tried the new beta yet as I need to stay consistent with the pipeline

Thanks

Ok, it seems the problem is the same we fixed in the beta (Segment has not associated geometry).

I just wanted to verify it. Thanks.
