Error message: "Project cannot be saved if other output was used for retouching"

Post by Cortado » 14.09.2020 12:18

Hi,
I loaded a project file. After a few retouching steps, I wanted to save the project file again. Then I get the error message: "Project cannot be saved if other output was used for retouching"
What can I do?

Hello,

i have this problem too. This is very annoying, as you never finish stacking and retouching an image within a processing time. The project memory function can almost no longer be used.
When can a bug fix be expected?

Best wishes
Olaf

Hi Michael and Olaf,
Unfortunately, nothing, other than not using another output as a source for retouching if you also need to save the project.

We're working on implementing this use case for a future version of Helicon Focus, though. As for when - it's not clear yet.

Hi Catherine,
Thanks for the answer. What do you mean by "another output as a source for retouching"?

When retouching in HF, you can either copy selected areas from source images from the stack, or from another output ('Use another output as a source' dropdown list can be found on the right panel beneath the source image list).
This message: "Project cannot be saved if other output was used for retouching" appears when you use another output as a source for retouching, so for the time being the only way to avoid this problem in case if you are planning on saving project is to use source files from the stack only and not to use other outputs.

Hello Catherine,

I have never used any other edition as a source for retouching. Nevertheless, this message comes regularly. So I don't understand.

Bye Olaf

Hello Olaf,

Are you absolutely certain that you didn't select the option "Use another output as source"? That is the only thing that can cause this message to appear.
