10.8.6 Import show doesn't import (all) effects

Post by gooze » Sat Mar 09, 2013 10:07 am

Trying to import cues from a show that contain effects doesn't always result in the same outcome. Sometimes the effects don't import at all, sometimes only a few of them import.
It doesn't matter if you tick 'import as copy' or not.

Channels that contain the effects were all patched in the other show.

Ran into this last night, imported 3 look pages of effects and none of the effects actually showed up. This did work at some point, right? Wasn't it fixed when the "copy cue/look with effects" bug was fixed?

Ran into this issue again. Someone created a show offline and managed to screw up a bunch of things. So we tried importing just the main cue stack into a show, but we lose the effects in the cues. We then tried using the file from the offline editor and importing 30+ cue stacks with effects and some look pages into the show and the effects don't show up.
