    Ok maybe I am doing something wrong but as I am trying to make some effects. The HLSNC file that is generated is all zeroes. I tried making a S3 file and an LSP file and they both looked ok (I think).
    Here is the effect build sheet:

    It is a single string effect done as a Mega-Tree with a 200 pixel string in 4 strands, 90 degree view so it only outputs 50 pixels worth.

    Thanks Sean,
    I do not mind waiting for the single string effects. I have been waiting for them since I first heard they were coming and am quite excited by the possibilities they bring. I have been sequencing more lately and thought I had best develop a base knowledge of Nutcracker so that when the new effects arrived I would be ready to go to town with it.


    I appreciate all the work that you have put in to this and the dedication you have shown to the community with your ongoing minis and software advancements. I hope you are saving enough time to get your own show up and running nicely this year.


    Cheers.
