spine_S_shape_01 settings (mGear 3.1.1)



When you draw the “spine_S_shape_01” and then try to rename in the settings the build crashes with:

GEAR version : 3.1.1

The guides do not rename either.


Try selecting the guides root and go into the shifter menu and use the update guides tool before trying to build.


Ahh, I see. Thought the update guides tool, was just between mGear versions.


I am sorry, But I think this is not solved. Looks like a real bug

This is my log only by changing the index. Other spine looks correct. I will log this but and research the issue ASAP.

Thanks for the heads up

Edit: I think maybe comes from the bad naiming in “u’spine_C0_crv” since this component have 2 curves for visualisation with same name


I have created a ticket for the bug:
