[BUG] MagmaFlow in Krakatoa 2.1.5

Steps to reproduce:
1: Create a simple setup like:


2: Save a single frame as PRT and Load it via PRT Loader and apply a MagmaModifier.

3: Now see this setup. Enable ">AUTO" or click on "UPDATE" and it gives the below error (InputTexmap is just a default Noise Texture)


4: Disable ">AUTO" and create a new InputVector and plug it into Color Output. Press update and it updates properly without any error.

5: Now (Make sure ">AUTO" is turned OFF) plug the old InputTexmap back to Color output (DO NOT PRESS "UPDATE") and render the scene. It will show the below error in MagmaEditor.


I tried this exact setup in the old "Krakatoa Channel" (Obsolete) modifier and it worked without any issue. So i doubt this is a MagmaFlow bug in v2.1.5.48953

Shouldn't you be posting this to the Thinkbox support or public forum, and not a general 3d forum?

I can confirm that it is a bug in 2.1.5. Please consider reverting to a previous beta build (2.1.4 or 2.1.3) until 2.1.6 is published with fixes for these issues. Please also remember these are Public Beta builds and are bound to have some issues.

Also, using the old style modifier is not really a solution because it will be automatically converted to a new Magma modifier next time you load the scene. The old KCMs are just for backwards compatibility when loading old scenes.

We are terribly sorry about this problem and will try to provide a fix ASAP.

Thanks for reporting it. As Eric said, next time please post on the Thinkbox public forums, I could have missed it here...

Thinkbox public forums doesnt load for me. In firefox, it just stays with "Waiting for forums.thinkboxsoftware.com..." and never displays anything. In IE it shows "Internet Explorer cannot cannot display the webpage". Not sure why...
