I am using the Shapediver version of Squid and on one machine I keep getting a serious error with the read bitmap component.
As soon as I connect a quick preview to the read component I get either of these 2 errors. The file path component has a path to a normal image on my C drive in it:
after pressing ok:
Or when you hover over the B output you get the follwing error:
and if you select to not show the message again you can see on the B pin:
This doesn’t happen with normal version of Squid, but I need to use this version as only this is compatible with the ShapeDiverImageSampler, which I need.
But also it doesn’t happen on my other machine, only on one, even though the Rhino version and all Grasshopper components are identical.
But somewhere in the Shapediver version of Read bitmap it handles something very ungracefully and makes everything fail. Once you had the format_failure error even if you delete and reinsert the component the error persists till you reopen Rhino. Since it fails right at the start though, I can’t use anything from Squid (ShapeDiver edition) on the other machine.
Any reason why this is happening?
Alternatively is there an image sampler that works with the normal version of Squid @MateuszZwierzycki? Something where I put in a SquidImage and a bunch of UV points and it gives me the color value at that point? The native GH image sampler is okay, but not very parametric (everthing has to be set via UI), so is not good in this case.
