Problems loading a walking sequence

    Good to know. I didn't have this error yet, but it's great that it seems to be possible to fix VS issues on Mac. I hope our postings will help the visionaire team to identify the reason for the errors and fix them. As already said, VS on Mac seems to be a little bit picky.

    Hi again,
    Mumpi seems to have found a solution for the sequence problem: VS on Mac does not seem to like the spaces in the filenames when loading a sequence. I just renamed the sequence frames to names without spaces, i could load the sequence without any problem. At least for now. I will try to apply this method to the whole project and see if the "save and run" error will still be there.


    You should always name your files with _underscores instead of spaces, to stay on the safe side! Same for names in the vs editor too (in case you need to access them via Lua script). wink

    A typical good sequence name would be something like this: protagonist_walk_west_000.png to protagonist_walk_west_024.png. And putting them in separate folders or at least the different animation types is always a good idea as it makes it easier to find stuff quicker.

    Thanks for the hint, I'll make it so.
    I'm happy I could create my arrest cell and have Jacob walking around in it! While fooling around with it, I found some minor graphic errors with the walk cycle and his haircut, going to sort that out first.
    The main thing I'm learning with VS now is this: The cleaner and simpler the result looks, the more complex it is behind the scenes, an illusion in fact.

    Reproduced and found.
    It's not the filename or pathname. You drop the image in the same directory of the .ved file.
    Better you make subfolders in the project directory and then add the images.
    Like:
    ProjectDir/Project.ved
    ProjectDir/characters/john/move right/Your image name000.png
    ProjectDir/characters/john/move right/Your image name001.png
    ProjectDir/characters/john/move right/Your image ..............

    Make your project clean smile

    Hi,
    I'm not sure about that. When I had this Problem, I had all the stuff in one folder without any subfolders.

    Right, and this was the issue. I get the same issue if i drop the png's in the project folder without any subdirectory.

    We have fixed it so you will be able to load a sequence even if the images are in the same folder as the project file (with next update). Nevertheless we recommend to create a clean project directory structure as BigStans suggested. E.g. directories for scenes, sounds, characters, interfaces, ... then subdirectories for each scene in the scenes directory and so on.
