Hi, thanks for sorting the image sequence issue.

I have a new one, GT doesn't appear to be saving the masks in the .gtzip

If I create a title with a mask it works fine in GT but doesn't embed when saved.

Maybe I'm not using the mask feature correctly, my workflow is:-

Create/import objects/text.
Draw rectangle over items I want to see.
Apply rectangle to each element as mask in the effects menu.
Turn off rectangles visability?
Save

Title in GT



Same title in vMix



.gtzip

football 3rdC v3.gtzip (642kb) downloaded 11 time(s).

If I delete the mask layer and save a copy of the file the images are visible.

Also I seem to be getting wildly different file sizes, the GTZIP above is about 0.6Mb but I have a different version of the same file that has saved out at 250mb!

If you need the 250Mb file let me know but I'll have to leave it going overnight as my upload where I am is terrible.

Masks have been working fine for me since first release... i use them the same way as any other design software. Place over the image you want to clip/mask.
You can also use the shape fill with image to control an image inside of a shape.

Do you think you could download the GTZIP above and test it on your machine?

Thank you.

Yeah, if you look at the youtube clip in GT the logos should appear out of the field.

Thanks for looking :)

Just downloaded and took a look in GT and there is no images at all in any of the image locations or shapes.

Just to confirm I also loaded it into vMix as a title and no images show-up just the 2 font % sections with animations.

Was the football 3rdC v3.gtzip definitely saved again using the latest .37 beta?
A bug was fixed preventing the embedded images from referencing correctly, but any old titles will need to be saved out
again (with the original file locations accessible) in order for it to be corrected.

As for the masks, it will need to be set to visible in order for the mask to render, but if you don't
want it to appear on the canvas, set the opacity to 0, which will still render for masking purposes.

As you can see in the Youtube screen cap of GT both logos are there, weird, thank you for looking.

I believe I built that from scratch in 1.0.0.37.

I think I've been using the mask feature incorrectly, the only thing that seemed to work, working without a manual, was to set the box mask to invisible, I tried setting the field colour to transparent in home -> colour -> transparent.

As you can see from the Youtube clip, this does appear to work in GT.

I'll build it again from scratch in 37 and use the opacity setting in effects (I assume that's what you mean).


Re the file sizes, some of these have about a 240mb png image sequence but some, like 'football 3rdD v4 no mask.gtzip' only has 3 small pngs yet a massive file size.

Thank you again for all your hard work, GT is an excellent tool and I look forward to using it in anger.

According to that list "football 3rdC v3.gtzip" was last saved on the 28th December, before the latest bug fix GT was released
so saving it again should fix the missing resources.

As for the large file sizes, saving them again in the latest update might fix things and if not, please send
us one of the files so we can see what is happening.

Excellent work on the update and educating me!

GT is working beautifully so far, really impressive, embedded graphics, animation and editable text fields at 0.5Mb!
