For me it's always been present since I first mentioned it...
I guess it's one of those things ;-)

I am totally confused here... :roll:

Could it be that the file has been edited and not saved in UTF-8 format? Just throwing
an idea here, because Thea expects all ascii files to be in that format. But then again
if it is pure English, I don't think there will be any problem...

If the problem is indexed-based, then I should be able to get the same error once
I use the same index file, no? By the way, I only tested on Tiger and Snow Leopard,
but not Leopard.

best wishes

Hi Ioannis,
text file is in plain English, so no worries here, and I'm on 10.6.6.

As a reminder the problem started with rev460 (http://www.thearender.com/forum/viewtop ... 5&start=10), but I think this will remain a mystery, as only a few people have experienced it.
For me it's a constant, every new revision since 460 brings it back, until I edit the index file.

No need to waste resources on this for now.

Cheers
Francois

Im using snow leopard as well, 10.6.6
It really isnt that bad for me cause i really never use direct preview. I dont like that preview cause doenst give the actual resembling of the mat. But perhaps people who render a lot in bsd it has it effect. Think its for that kind of use isnt it. Perhaps i just need to dump ktnot cause i never really use them either.

I think I know what's going on... on RV460 there was a change to support material rooms
that have names with a space. It is very probable now that the reading the line from
the index.txt file causes a problem on Linux/MacOSX if the file has been edited on Windows.

OK, but where does that blue/yellow checker come from? :angel:

Don't worry, this is an internally described scene, in the case that no scene could be loaded from the disc. :oops:

Hi Ioannis,
just for your information, the bug is still present in 472 ;-)
For some reason, with each new installation, Thea seems to be replacing the "index.txt" file located in library>application support>thea render>scenes>materialeditor.
For me it's just a matter of editing the file and then everything's fine.

Cheers

Yes, everything gets replaced by the new revision. This smells like an easy fix though ;)
