View Full Version : Lost ability to preview any pixel plane (native/external) effect

11-07-2013, 01:45 AM
For some reason I can’t preview any pixel plane (native/external) effect in the preview.
I spent hours and hours to figure it out and I am stumped.
Here is a link to a small HLS sequence test zip file where all is included. MGTree PP.zip (https://app.box.com/s/cr1dxyjp6vqdu261kruw)
Can anybody look at it and figure out why the preview does not work?

There is a 100px tree with 10 vertical strings. Channels are assigned to Pixel Plane and vice versa. All is set how it should be.
I used to implement bunch of pixel planes several times before without any issue and suddenly with the latest versions of HLS it does not work.

Joe, did we lose any capability with recent updates or is it just me?

Please can anybody help me out to figure it out? I am currently stuck in my sequencing now.

Since one of the duplicate threads got removed (upon my request) here are more details about the issue. The duplicate thread has already some discussion with a solution:

Please try 16v


angus40 thank you very much.

16V works!
Now I lost my background effect layer capability.
Joe, is the fix coming any soon?
