Summary0000441: The sketcher effect causes the application to close
DescriptionI want to write a tutorial on paths with the sketcher effects, and I wanted to check if I could change the stroke color in one step using the wizard for it. I have seen that this did not work, so far everything normal.
The reason for this notification is because when performing this test when trying to preview the result Cinelerra has been closed suddenly.
This has always been the case, in all attempts. Perhaps I am doing things that are not correct to do, but I wanted to notify you in case you think that the closure of the sudden should be fixed. The color change, with which it is known that it does not work is already solved, with one undo it is fixed, the problem I see in the sudden closure.
I have added a video with the problem.

Thanks to RafaMar for verifying the fix. Can close any time.

Wonder of wonders, my sincere congratulations Phyllis, now not only does it not close, but you can change the color of the stroke to all the frames without losing the animation. This is much more than I could imagine.
When I reported the error it was because I worry about the closure, but now the effect has gained many points, in the next tutorial I will make about it I will mention this improvement. A user already asked me how I made the traces from the beginning of the video on the map trace.
Thank you very much Phyllis.

It took quite some time to get a fix implemented. A test Mint 19.3 static tar is at:
The fix is to "change the stroke color in one step using the wizard for it." Other bug fixes were applied but since I was not able to reproduce the crash for sure, I have not been able to verify that the crash is also fixed. However, with the fixes in it never crashed for us.

The applied fixes were to correct "keyframe spanning" for Sketcher, Tracer, and Crikey plugins which all have a unique usage requiring a different method to accomplish this. The one thing that may not be obvious is that the keyframe spanning is applicable to the previous keyframe as well as the selected keyframe as it needs that to do the processing.

It is admirable how well you work. Thank you very much, Cinelerra does not stop improving.

For others who may be reading this. The problem was found and a plan to implement a spanning keyframe change for the Sketcher and possibly other plugins, will be delayed until next month. This is because it is a pervasive change and now there is insufficient time to make a fix and test it well enough before 05/31 builds are to be done.

Ok, thank you very much, the next time I find an error I will look at this line and send this file too.

If you look at your sketcher_error demo, you see at time 01:53:541 the window where you started cinelerra from, the line:
    writing debug data to /tmp/cinelerra_14291.dmp
since you make such thorough demos it is not needed at all but it never hurts for GG to see it. The 14291 number changes depending on the clock time.

Thank you. How do you create this /tmp/cinelerra_14291.dmp file?

Confirmed by GG reproducing this and he will try to look at it tomorrow. Thank you for the demo as it made it possible to create. It is also helpful if in the future it creates a /tmp/cinelerra_14291.dmp to include that also.
