I was playing around with the new features, so was saving out a light panel and loading it into Iagine, changing settings and resave etc. It was after changing settings one or twice that it started corrupting files, and the only way to fix it was to reload the bitmap and create a new lightpanel.

do you mean saving the 'settings' in Imagine or Lightball.
I suspect there is a bug in my settings routines..I have seen the error occur in the past but cant recreate it at the moment.If you could document a sure method to make it happen it would make the bug easier to find.The bad chunk size error probaly points to a problem with the number of lights being changed and then not saved properly in the settings.I'll look it over as well but i havn't looked at some of these routines for months and have to relearn what i was doing when i wrote them

Perhaps an option to pick the colour directly from the bitmap???

yep,can do that easily enough ,perhaps a magic wand type thing using a threshold setting as well..

Anyway, thanks for the tips, will have another go with it and hope it doesn't crash the machine again LOL

heh,its easy to create massive iobs with panellites.I may have to change the one pixel=one light idea and use an averaging system using larger bitmaps(as in lightgen),otherwise we are stuck with editing individual pixels in small bitmaps.
