Saving to file problems

Postby Peter » Sun May 15, 2011 11:24 am

Hi first time using Fantasoft and having problems trying to save to file and then re-opening it again.

I'm giving it a name to go into my hard drive file which is saved ok, but when I try to open it up next time it's saying file is corrupt or error and not found, showing instead a totally new bmp extension and title which I've never seen before so the file and all work is lost.... I've tried finding the bmp file in my computer search files but nothing.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong please ?

Thanks
Peter

Just note that the source image files you import into FantaMorph are not embeded in the project file, so please don't move, delete or rename them even if the project is saved ok, or else FantaMorph can't locate the original image files.

OK thanks. Is it still possible to retrieve the files or are they gone for good ?

Also how do you remove all the old dots when in a new sequence ?

Yes, it is still possible to retrieve the files if you still have them.
For example, when you load a saved project and meet the error "The source image file c:\folder1\myfile.jpg is missing or corrupt. Do you want to locate it?" just choose "Yes", then locate the replacement file c:\folder1\newfile.jpg or c:\folder2\myfile.jpg due to you renamed myfile.jpg to newfile.jpg, or moved it to another folder c:\folder2 after you saved the project.

Choose the Edit/Clear All menu to remove all the old dots.

HI again,

All going well but as I was about to Export swf movie, I noticed in the preview panel that the smooth transition from Image 1 to 2 had suddenly disappeared and was now split up into fragments from start to finish, like broken glass....

Is there anyway to restore the original smooth sequence ?

Thanks
Peter

I'm not sure I fully understand your question. Did you encounter similar problems on other projects? If the problem only occurred on a particular project, please send us the project, we'll find out.

I think it happened once before but couldn't remember why or what caused it as I was still learning.

This time it was the usual smooth Preview ok from Image 1 to 2, but I think because I couldn't remember what I'd done previously in adding sequences I tried adding sequence 5 to the previous 4 by clicking on "Link Sequence", which I think might have then caused the movie in Preview to break up completely. When "Paused" It looked a bit like a broken pane of glass on the floor, shattered. In the end I gave up and had to delete it unfortunately.

What is "Link Sequence" used for ?

Thanks.

Now I knew the fragments problem you met is just caused by "Link Sequence".

When you create a sequence morph from image A to image B, then image B to image C, you can use "Link Sequence" to have image B in the second sequence is completely same as the image B in the first sequence, not only image itself, but also the key dots on the image.

So, there might be problem if you don't place key dots in the same order. For example, in the first sequence A to B, you place dot #1 on the left eye, dot #2 on the right eye, but in the second sequence B to C, you may place dot #1 on the right eye, dot #2 on the left eye, the morph now runs smoothly.

Now, if you click "Link Sequence", in the second sequence B to C, image B will have the same dots of image B in the first sequence A to B, that means dot #1 will be on the left eye, dot #2 on the right eye. However, on image C, dot #1 is still on the right eye, dot #2 is still on the left eye, this conflicting dot order will certainly cause the morph B to C split up into fragments and look "like a broken pane of glass on the floor".

How to avoid this problem? You just need to adjust the dots on image C after use "Link Sequence", or else never use "Link Sequence" if you are not sure you place key dots on all images in the same order.

Great thanks got it !

Does this mean that if you ever click on "Link Sequence" by mistake in the future, you've got to start again or can it be reversed ? Such as with an "Undo" button ?

Probably best to save a spare copy in case....

Enjoying it all enormously and although I'm still making lots of mistakes and struggling to understand things, I will definitely buy the pro version !! :D

For now, all actions between sequences are not undone. We plan to add "undo" for these actions, Add/Delete/Link/Duplicate Sequence etc., in the next version.

The "Undo" addition sounds very useful any idea when it's likely to appear, or will it be included as an Update ?

It would be available in the next release, version 6, in the next year.
Thank you for your patience.
