    Lack of Attic saves 2018.12.3

    Avid bombed out so just relaunched expecting to lose 3-4 mins work.  Instead I lost 45 mins.  Checked the attic and there is a 45 min gap between saves in this instance - otherwise its the regular autosave every 3-4 mins as I have set.  Click image to enlarge and see the Attic file created times...

    Anyione any ideas why - im really a bit grumpy about it having lost 45 mins on a National Holiday!

    Re: Lack of Attic saves 12.3.2

    I’ve been there too a couple of times. Seems to happen when the sequence gets corrupted. In the previous versions an error would pop up when saving the bin - manually or auto save. But the new background bin save does not handle this well as it just stops saving the bin :-( I’ve created a case and it is now a feature request: Tell the user if a bin cannot be saved!

    Great - gald there is a case going. 

    I'm not so keen on this background save so far - it just locks you out and you click the mouse buttons and nothing happens.  At least with the save pop up you knew not to try any buttons as it was busy...

    Re: Lack of Attic saves 12.3.2

    This is getting to me now. After the very first actual seq edit in a new project it crashes.  Then again 5 minutes later.  The lack of project saves (its set to max 4 mins between saves) suggests its this background save that is crashing it. 

    It crashed after save 5 I guess:

     

     

    Utter basic sound cuts timeline on a simple project.

     

    Could I get that case number pls mate and piggyback?

    Re: Lack of Attic saves 12.3.2

    Yep - crashed again at 09:57 - last sucessful actual project save at 9:44.  Just a straight local save to my super fast SSD... I'll have to call support.

    Re: Lack of Attic saves 12.3.2

    You can disable background save in the console with the commands BackgroundBinSave and SwitchBinSaveWorkflow.

    Try running them and see if you can save manually.

    The case I opened has number 03666008.

    Re: Lack of Attic saves 12.3.2

    Fresh new project on MC 2018.12.3, after a  week of work I wanted to go back to an earlier revision of a sequence (no crash involved), I went to the attic and it was totally empty, rather disappointing. But that's not all, went back to MC and then again to the attic folder, and it started to populate with the bins backups, what a poltergeist! This background save feature is in the alpha stage perhaps. Are the console commands to disable background save sticky, or You have to enter them every time You open a project? Couldn't avoid noticing what the acronym for background save is.

    Maybe those background saves could present a confirmation message? “You are protected!’

    Re: Lack of Attic saves 12.3.2

    backgroundbinsave command is not persistant between relaunches/reboots. If you crash or restart you must open the console and enter the command again.   

     

    On windows, there may be a way to use a run argument in a shortcut to force this parameter on launch. Have not tried it myself.
