Depending on the serverity of the error it might be helpful for us to have access to the scene file.

Please note, that this free public beta of SHAPES 5 still might contain bugs or errors which can limit the functionality. By downloading the beta version you agree that brave rabbit can not be held responsible for any damage.



The ramp weights node of SHAPES 5 is NOT compatible with earlier versions. Loading older scenes containing the ramp weights node causes errors and resulting in the scene not working correctly.

In order to avoid any incompatibilities it is necessary to REMOVE the ramp weights node from the older scene file through SHAPES and then install the new version.

If you need assistance for this process please contact us.
