Bitmap table dump

With some materials, when I make a change to the material, I get a flood of text saying “Bitmap table dump” and then a list of several raster images that have nothing to do with the file I’m working on. This particular file has 15 images and they are listed 2-15::Bitmap:. Some are on network drives, lots are temporary files like: 5::Bitmap:“C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp$flamingo$texture$5690a51a-ff91-4a84-adb5-8bee13f754aa.bmp”. And it repeats this dump over a dozen times (the command history only goes back that far) and takes several seconds.

Some seem to be textures and some may be viewport wallpapers used to align models for matte work.

I’ve used the ExportBitmaps command and it writes all these images to a directory. Is there a way to purge them from the file?


@JohnM, you may want to have a look at this

I have a few question regarding this issue:

  • Can you send me a copy of the file in question?
  • What kind of materials are these, native Rhino materials or Flamingo materials?
  • Do you have Flamingo installed and is it the current render plug-in?

@jesterking I searched Flamingo and can’t find “Bitmap table dump” anywhere, is it possible this is coming from the RDK?

@JohnM either @johnc or @andy would know

Thanks for the interest in this problem!

These materials are from Flamingo which I have installed and is the current and only render plug-in I use.

Versions are:
Flamingo: nXt 3.1.2014.422
Toolkit: 1.0.334.0
Rhino: 5 SR14 64-bit (5.14.522.8390)

I’ve sent you the file via direct message.

The text “Bitmap table dump” is not coming from the RDK. I searched the whole Rhino source code including all plug-ins and couldn’t find that text. I searched Rhino 5, Rhino 6, all file types including .cs. No results at all. Could it be coming from a plug-in I don’t have the code for?
