Reactor Troubleshooting - Resync Repository Menu Item

Post by AndrewHazelden » Wed Dec 19, 2018 5:01 am

Hi. Quite a few new tools and open source libraries have been added to the SteakUnderwater GitLab Reactor repository site this week.

The content includes about 40+ new atom packages that deliver a total of roughly 3000 files that can be installed in only a few clicks. Hopefully, this new technology will help take your Fusion compositing experience to the next level.

Your Next Reactor Sync

I wanted to provide a small tip that could help you out if you find that your copy of Reactor has a hard time doing its next sync command when you open the Reactor package manager window.

If after a few seconds you then see an error message in the Fusion/Resolve console tab that looks like this, its handy to know there is a simple solution to your current problem.

Here is the error message again but written as inline text. This will hopefully help you find this Reactor usage tip in the future when a search is done on WSL for a solution to the following Reactor 'nil' commit state error:

Code: Select all

...ckmagicDesign/Fusion/Reactor/System/Protocols/GitLab.lua:196: attempt to index local 'commits' (a nil value)

Resync Repository Tool

You can solve the GitLab syncing issue in mere seconds by running the Reactor > Tools > Resync Repository menu item inside of Fusion Standalone v9.

Inside of Resolve 15 this same feature can be found under a deeply nested sub-menu:
Fusion > Script > Reactor > Tools > Resync Repository

Reactor Callback Error

This note was originally posted in the Reactor Submissions thread for KartaVR v4. I thought I should post a copy of the message here as well so the error codes are all readable in one area.

If you install more then 800 files (from atom packages) in a single Reactor Package Manager GUI session you may see a "callback" error message written into the Fusion Console view. Simply closing/re-opening the Reactor Package Manager window will solve this callback issue and let you continue using Reactor to install more content.

The callback error message looks like this:

...kmagic Design/Fusion/Reactor/System/Protocols/GitLab.lua:92: too many callbacks

Until the Reactor core callback fix is implemented, I'd suggest skipping the installation of the "com.AndrewHazelden.KartaVR.Docs" atom and read the KartaVR documentation online.

To avoid the callback issue during the KartaVR install, close the Reactor Package Manager window after doing all the Reactor "Bin" category installs. Then close and re-open the Reactor Package Manager window again after installing all of the KartaVR "Tools" atoms. And then finally install all the KartaVR "Scripts" atoms.

Reactor v3 has fixed the callback issue. :)
