    If it's the crash report I just processed -- you were attempting to set Matrix channels without first setting the Matrix size.

    I failed to consider someone attempting to do that.

    Version 20L now checks for Matrix size before letting you set Matrix channels.

    HI joe, some progress, however, As per pic below cant seem to get face name up in the Assign channels table , as well as phenomes are all purple/locked out so I cant draw the faces for each one, so far no crash on this version so cant send you anything only the pic below.

    They are purple because you have not assigned any faces.

    You are working so hard it looks like you are skipping steps.

    hi joe, thanks for your patience. I don't believe I am skipping steps. however 1. work computer, new install of 20L , new song, new preview (ie just the matrix)appears to be working.
    2. come home to try and same problem with purple screen.
    3. tried new install, new song but using image from original song to rebuild all the channels and the same problem- purple only, does this shed any light??

    Show me the screen where you select what face positions you are using.

    HI Joe, here are snapshots from start to where it sticks (doesn't freeze) but when you press Done in "Assign Mouth Channels" it goes away but when you go back in nothing is saved and no change in the purple phenome choices, Right or Left click does nothing on Phenome selection.
    However right clicking on the Num COL(X) (in pic says 8)( or In Col (Y)as well): brings up the "Animation Colour Matrix Editor" .
    Left clicking brings back the Size Animation Matrix popup box.
    Side note- if you choose one colour for the background then you cant change it again to another bulk change of another colour without individually clicking every tile to change.
    Cheers and thanks Joe

    Hi Boof:

    I think you are skipping the step where you have to assign your mouth positions to display faces (that is the AI, E, O etc). Once you assign those, you can open Assign Mouth Position Channels and your face will appear.

    Hi Joe, have a question on the new animation. I 'll use your video as a reference. When you assign the initial yellow color for the matrix of the mouth (to blend it to the background later in the video) is that color permanent once you paint your mouth channels and assign them to the mouth position or can you edit it later in the sequence to a different color? In some instances I like to change the color of the face which is easy to do with fill channels (if not the time savings in assigning color to mouth channels may out weigh the use of fill channels if it has to remain a single color). I haven't played with the new version yet as I am still working on a previous animation prior to the changes (I don't want to blow out the channels and work I already have done thus losing aloot of time and work).

    Hope I made sense,

    Thanks
    Gary

    Ps if you thought clicking 49 times for the yellow, then you wouldn't want to know how many times I click to change mouth colors on Monster Mash, Running with the devil and my current one heaven and hell not to mention cut and paste, lol but it is what it is.

    The background (yellow in your example) is permanent.

    My intent was to leave the background BLACK and then let the "Background Color" show thru .... it didn't so I suggested to fill the mouth/eye with a color.

    I'm going to investigate why my BLACK mouth/eye color did not allow the BACKGROUND to show thru and fix it if I can --- next release.

    The alternative is to create another Face/Eye with the different background --- then only use the one you want.

    Hope that helps.

    Joe
