Scratch Play CONstruct clips set to 1 frame only

I’m stumped about something in Scratch Play. Something I did has changed my timelines (CONstruct) so that only the head frame plays. If you open the clip itself, there's a "mark out" on the first frame of the clip. This doesn't seem to let itself be reset. Instead of playing the full clip for each in the timeline, it cycles through a series of head frames. I can’t figure out how to get back to the full timeline. If I create a new CONstruct, lengths are normal. This has happened on two machines. Any clue? Thanks.

EDIT: This doesn’t appear to be anything I’m doing. I can do this with one CONstruct in the database. Simply load clips, exit Scratch Play and then re-launch. When I’m back in, each clip is 1 frame only. This is happening with both Mac OS X 10.9.4 and Windows 8.1.

Cheers,
Oliver

Hi Oliver,
This happens with any footage type or only specific and, if so, which one ?
Maybe you had "Still Frames" selected in the browser filter when you loaded the files ?

Thanks
D.

Various formats - RED, Alexa Pro Res, others

Nope. Just tested it again. If you load clips using "multiple shots" it will populate the construct. Plays fine and all clips are full duration. When you close Scratch Play and reopen, this construct changes to 1 frame only per clip. When you load clips one at a time to a new construct (not using "multiple clips"), then it appears to be OK.

This seems to be random. I tried the same thing on another machine with just a single clip and it was back at a 1 frame duration after I closed and re-launched. I have several constructs on each of 2 machines. A few maintain full length, but most change to 1 frame clip durations. One machine is Mac OS X 10.9.4 and the other is Windows 8.1

This is really weird and i cannot reproduce here.
I would suggest that you ensure you are on PLAY latest build and connect with the PLAY dedicated forum at http://groups.google.com/group/scratch-play/topics
Also add a logfile when the shots are just 1 frame (Assimilator.log file located either in C:\Program Data\Assimilator\Settings\Logs\ on PC or Library/Application Support/Assimilator/Settings/Logs/ on OSX.

Thanks
D.

I downloaded and installed the latest version (Mac and PC) and tried fresh constructs on both machines. This seems to have fixed the issue on the new constructs. Both machines appear to be behaving OK with the same media I tried before.

The Mac was indeed on an older build. Odd, though, is the PC. That build was downloaded and installed within the past week and a half. Seems odd that another build was posted in that time, which fixed the issue.

In any case, it's working now as expected.
