Default Re: SCRIPT: loading and saving background image configs

Very sorry about this. It was found that the bug is in AC3D and not the script. Hoping to release an AC3D update soon.

Default Re: SCRIPT: loading and saving background image configs

Ok this is weird but I got it to sort of work by accident.

In the work window under '2D' next to 'View' - I 'Set Background Image...' and position it. Then from the 'Tools' drop down menu I 'Save background image config'. The .acp file is created.

I save, quit and restart AC3D.

I open the file select 'Load background image config' and select the .acp file. I then get a drop down message 'Failed to load 'Users/..../image.jpg' as a background image' three times.

I was giving up.

BUT- then when I go to 'Set Background Image...' again all the position work I did has been saved.

I'm using AC3D 8.3.30 for Mac.

*****
Related question- To move the image before I save it, I use 'cmd/shift arrow' but the progress can be excruciatingly slow if I have a large image to move a long distance. Is there a way to toggle the increments for larger to smaller?

Unfortunately the nature of the bug means that it's probably best not to use the background-image script with the 64 bit AC3D. The fact it works sometimes is probably an accident (memory/byte misaligned)



There are two values you can edit in the AC3D preferences file which affect the key controls on background images.


background_image_zoom_factor
key_background_image_move_pixels


On the Mac, the settings file is saved in your home directory as .ac3dprefs.
