random save problems

Hello everyone.
With the latest releases of Millumin 2 it occourred randomly that a project has not been saved properly.
Even if the save command did not reported any error, re-opening the project presented properties and files of the pre-save version.
I can not tell how to replicate this. I noticed it while I was preparing a project to live to an operator and collecting resources to give a closed project, finding with surprise old media loaded instead of newly changed or dashboard programming not updated.
Did anyone registred this beheaviour?
Many thanks

  • Hello @aigore,

    This sounds very weird : from a technical point of view, Millumin cannot write old data into a file. Indeed, it only writes the current state of your project.
    We never have such a reported problem.

    Did it happen once ? Or many times ?
    Did you used "collect files" features ?
    Could you check the date/hour of your project, to see if something was written when you pressed CMD+S ?


    Lastly, and just for info : if you move your project file to another location while editing it, Millumin will retrieve this new location and save your project there (this is automatically managed by macOS).

    Hi Philippe, thanks for the answer.
    Indeed I found it very strange.
    I can describe what I was doing so maybe it can be useful.
    I was editing a project, changing some media with new versions, saving it and collecting files from it to pack a new project with last version media. From that packed project I did again some changes, updated media with last versions and dashboard changes here and there, and collected again to give to the operator only necessary media.
    I noticed that in the latest saves, reopening the project, the media that should be of latest versions instead was of previous ones. So I checked the collected folder and th media was presenti in both versions. Names of media were different at the origin, so names weren't an issue.  I even saved the project with different names and dates and hours were different. At last I fixed deleting the old ones and leaving only the latest ones, doing again the changes and saving different times. Hope that makes sense.
    My best

  • Hello @aigore,

    Sorry, I don't really understand what happened. But it seemed you did a lot of changes outside Millumin.
    Did this happen only once ? Or several time ?

    To be direct, and from a technical point-of-view, this is not possible for Millumin to collect both previous and current versions of your media. Indeed, Millumin does not "remind" the paths of your previous media !
