Paint node <no object selected>

Hello,
Fusion Studio on Mojave.

When using the paint node in a composition I noticed the following behavior.
After saving and closing a composition, when I re-open it the paint controls are gone, it displays a <No object selected> message. The paint strokes appear to still be active part of the composition, but they cannot be accessed/modified anymore in the tool control panel.
Any idea?
Thanks
j

The strokes are modifiers of the actual paint tool.
When you click on the Modifier Tab, they should all be there and selectable.
Also, most of the strokes should be selectable directly in the view by dragging a box around their rough extent.

A similar question was discussed in this topic.

Essential to remember is that there are different stroke types in Fusion. Here are the most important ones as per the manual:

Stroke
The ‘standard’ Stroke. Fully animatable and editable. Might become slow if hundreds of
strokes are used in an image; for huge amounts of strokes it is better to use MultiStroke.

Multistroke
Perfect for those 100-strokes-per-frame retouching paint jobs like removing trackingmarkers.
Much faster than the Stroke, but not editable later on.

Polyline Stroke
A fully editable stroke based on animatable Polylines. Can be connected to existing
polylines like Masks or Animation Paths.

Hope this helps. Moving this topic to the Fusion forum, as this is not a bug... :)
