I've done 2 days worth of work masking out my actor with garbage mattes in Chromy. I have a green image below the video layer, so that I can take out the green smoothly in a different composition later. Now here's my problem. Today, I'm getting ready to start working again, but when I try to open the saved file, I get a Director Player Error. Says "Script Error".

If I click yes to continue, I get the same error every time I click anything, and if I click no, the program closes. I've looked in the forums, and I've seen the same error with numerous people, but never when trying to open something they've already been working on for two days...

I'm going to be really annoyed if I lose all the work I've already done, so there must be a way to fix this.

I'm running OS 10.3.3, on a G4 tower, dual 1.25 processors, 1GB RAM. Thanks in advance.

Sorry to hear that Aculag. If you send the save file to support@fxhome.com we'll take a look at it and see if there's anything we can do.

The pre-release used a temp file format which has been completely revamped and changed for the final release, which should mean people won't encounter these save file problems once the final version is out.

Keep the program file and the work you've been working on.. and try and reinstall chromanator?

I wouldn't do this first however, wait for one of the csb guys to reply!
Come along into the chat and maybe one of them will be around to help?

Has there been any progress on this? Don't want to sound like I'm rushing it, but... I'd like to get it done.
