Through helping Carl with his issue , I have experienced that the text is inverted 180 vertically .

or mybe no issue at all .

I do not know if this is a Nutcracker export issue or an Hls import issue .

Here is the .HLSNC File for your testing .

64 x 42 mega tree effect .

When I export the text effect from NC and then drop into HLS, it inverts it 180 degrees as it should....
It looks upside down in HLS when I view it and displays as it should in preview.

In HLS that is what mine looks like but on my preview, it looks like this:
23129
I was thinking the same as you, but it works perfectly and that was straight export from NC.

I have no issues with the PP my self :)

I think I have demo'd almost every type of effect .

I could not get the rgb effects to play correctly exported from Nutcracker for Carls Setup.

Just to be clear, my NC model was very simple, 12 strands (30 pixels/strand):
23131
And my Pixel plane was a MT, 24 strands but only 12 used in preview as it is a 180 degree tree. All strings feed from bottom to top, no zig zag.:
23132
Maybe I just got lucky in my setup since I am new to nutcracker, but things worked perfectly so far in preview (no actual pixels yet, waiting on ray).
The only weird thing I saw so far was in setting up my arches in HLS and preview. I had to select Assign Channels in Reverse to get it to work as expected (chase from left to right was going right to left or pixel 20 to pixel 1 instead of pixel 1 to pixel 20).
So far playing with NC has been awesome and very easy to pickup and export effects into HLS is a snap. The only effect giving me trouble is an animated gif and that seems to be a scaling issue (some work perfect and others look horrible, but my resolution at 30 pixels is pretty lame). The speed of the animation of the gif is another thing entirely, it seems to not perform as expected....
Sorry a bit off topic, just my playing with NC thus far.
:wink:

the only thing not working in ver 19n is the modify on a PP channel.

This is all i have encountered .

and I am hard on the equipment ! :)

Hls has taken an extreme beating from my use .
