    Exclamation Completely blank / transparent .pngs crash LiveText 2.52 (not LT 2.1)

    I just discovered that since updating to LiveText 2.52, a completely transparent .png (all alpha values set to 0) will cause LiveText 2.52 to lockup and stop responding completely, necessitating a force quit.

    This happens if you attempt to change an existing image to a blank one via DataLink, or if you drag a fully-transparent image from the FileBin onto the canvas, even on a completely new project.

    Changing even 1 pixel of the image to alpha value 1 (intead of 0) is enough for LT to operate normally. (Note, this does not recover from a crash, it simply won't cause one.)

    This bug did not exist in LT 2.1

    Thanks!

    I reported this today, too (not realizing that you had already reported it). I believe this is also causing problems with centering images. A 1920x1080 image, that is actually just a lower third, will center by the non-transparent data, not the full resolution. The image imports just fine, but if you move it at all then try to center it, your only recourse is to re-import the image.

    The support guys answered my bug report promptly and LiveText v2.53 is now available for download!

    I just tried it out and it works great.

    Thanks for the prompt support!

    This thread is now complete.

    Came for the same reason - mine was hard to figure out!

    I was loading a blank png as a placeholder for a dynamic image.. so it took me forever to realize that, when my parsing software spit the blank plaseholder filename, Livetext would crash.

    Downloading now!
