View Full Version : Help Aura Hangs on Import Image

Aura Hangs when I try to Import an image.

FYI, VT2 Build 3890 no previous problems before in any module.

When I launch Aura, a windows dialogue box appears at 39% loaded and tries to open a LWVD.dll file located at C:\VideoToaster2\Plugins\aura\preview. I selcet the file or cancel the operation and Aura opens. I can load the image as a project but it locks when I try to Import an image or sequence. It LOCKS at the file requester dialogue box.

From: AURAVT now wants a LWVC.dll path (http://vbulletin.newtek.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=3559&highlight=LWVD.dll)

Open Aura
When the requester opens up goto [YourDrive]:/VideoToaster2/plugins/Aura/Preview
Load LWVD.dll
Open the Preview/Lightwave Filter
close Aura [and save settings]
After that it should take and you will no longer get the requester .

Thanks! That cleared the filter load upon launch but did not cure the "hanging" on image import.

Ah Ha! Changing the type of file requester from Aura to regular Windows did the trick!

No more hanging!

Forgot about that little bug. There are apparently certain file types that will hang the Aura file requester if they're within the directory you're accessing. The one I know causes it in my case is Paint Shop Pro's "pspbrwse.jpf" which is the index file for their thumbnail browser. As long as I use the Windows file requester I have no problems. The bug was long ago reported and Andrew was going to look into it, but haven't heard anything.
