Can you please investigate this?



I had a folder called "Spot Fades/chases" that showed up in the live.ini file as "Spot Fades:Chases" this would be broken on the next computer that it was imported into.

When you export a show? Does it copy the entire show directory or does it re-create?

I'm noticing that scenes and folders not directly called up in the show get left behind. This is partly why it's breaking.

If I have scene folders and generator folders in the show folder that are not in use or on a live board, they don't seem to go with the show when you export it.

On Mac OS X, if you create a page and put a generator file in it that has a "\" in the path to the file, it gets put into live.ini as a ":" in the path.

We are not able to reproduce that.
We created the folder "aaa" in ".../Generator/projects/" and from our software we saved the scene "scene" in the folder "aaa".
And the path is correctly written in "live.ini".

Please tell us how you proceed to do that.

Try creating a folder called "aa/a"

Yes, our software replaces "aa/a" by "aa:a".
This is because "/" is already used in the path name for the tree structure.
The other raison is Microsoft Windows does not allow "/" in folder names. This means a MacOS lightshow using this character can not be transported under Windows.

Please use only multi-OS friendly characters for folder names.

That makes a lot more sense. I will try removing all of that and re-test.
