File dialog freeze 25 secs

PostTue Nov 28, 2017 11:02 am

Hi!

I have had a problem with Fusion Studio 8 and 9; Studio 7 works fine somehow.

Whenever I browse a loaders file, or open the file dialog for loading a comp, it will take up to 25 seconds to finally appear. When I close it and open the dialog immediately, it will open instantly. When I wait half a minute and try to open it I have the same delay again.

I removed all favorites from the file dialog, removed all links to offline network drives, performed clean installs, to no avail :cry:

Weird thing is that Fu Studio 7 has none of these issues, even with all offline network drives still in the favorites etc.

I've managed to mostly circumvent this issue on my last couple of projects by dragging and dropping files and typing in paths into the loaders, but man, this is a hassle!!

Anybody recognize this problem?

Cheers!

do you have any external drives attached to your workstation? or any energy saving settings for the harddrives?

fusion needs to wait for these drives to come out of the sleep/energy saving mode which will take some seconds.

Good point. However this does not seem to be the case. All drives are up and running, and instantly accessible from any other file dialogue (AFX, Premiere, Houdini).

Cheers,

Isn't there an option somewhere to use the Windows file browser instead of Fusion's? I can't seem to find it. That might solve the problem.

Hi Bryan,

Thanks! I already looked for that option, and couldn't find it also. I think BMD has ditched it. I love the Fu filebrowser for it's own set of favorites and the sequence gathering, so Windows explorer would be a workaround (if it still exists from within Fu), but I'd rather have the internal one.

Cheers!

I seem to recall the same thing. I think it was a preference setting somewhere.
Even though I really like the Fusion browser as well.

EDIT:

Found it at https://www.steakunderwater.com/wesuckless/

You can also opt to use the default OS file requester in Fusion by putting the following in the console:
Code: Select all
fusion:SetPrefs("Global.FileReq.CustomDialogs", false)

Hope that helps.

Hi Sander,

Thanks for that, good find... should have checked the old forum =]

Anyways, when I use that line of code in the Console and then try to open a file, Fusion just pops away and chrashes.. =\

Ah well. That's not the way it should be either. Sorry, I only found the code snippet. I have no idea of its inner workings.
