I’m updating this post because I’ve found that the problem is bigger than the original issue (which has persisted even after a complete reinstall).
Just as a test, I tried simply doodling with the brush and pencil tools. And what did I find? Everything shows up as black! No matter what color I pick, they all show as black!
That’s why any images I imported were all black… because all color in the entire camera/drawing view is displaying as solid black!
What’s going on here?? Someone please help!
-Imported images are all black (Harmony 14)-
So I was trying to follow along with the first Harmony Essentials Kick-Start tutorial (found here: http://learn.toonboom.com/modules/how-to-create-and-set-up-your-project2?c=8), when I quickly hit a roadblock…
On Step 4, “How to Import a Bitmap Image”, when I follow the instructions and import the sample images, the result is a camera view filled with black (see attached screenshot).
I tried switching from OpenGL mode to render mode to see if that might help, but it seemed to make no difference. I also tried importing the images without using the “Vectorize Image” option, but the result was the same. Upon trying to import just one image at a time, the “mountain-bush” png image did show up, but again, it was all black, not green like in the actual file. This makes me think that the imported images are being filled with black, for some reason, and so when I import the full-screen “mountaintop_layout” image, it is indeed imported, but as it’s being filled with black, that’s all I see as a result.
What could be going on? I am totally new to this, so any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
PS: The program is crashing a lot on me as well, even when I simply click to close it.
