Text Exporter problems
« on: April 19, 2007, 10:45:10 PM »
I got the following error message:

The Text Exporter template encountered an error ....
The Error was: #<RuntimeError: expand_var NUL NRFImageInforPtr for image index 124, document cell 223.>

(eval):231: in 'query'
(eval):482:in 'value'
(eval):482:in 'sandbox'
(eval):615:in 'kickoff_background_export'

What does this mean?

The template got an error.  What was the text you were exporting?  Were all of the items selected in the contact sheet actual images or were they other filetypes?

Resuscitating this thread because I'm having the same problem, on Windows 7 x64, PM version 5 build 13915. Here's the exact error I'm getting:



I've been using PM to export metadata for hundreds of thousands of images, which are stored in hundreds of folders along with a few other files of different types (GPX and PDF, mainly). It's gone well except for a few folders, where I'm getting the above error. Is there a way to show the image index numbers so I can de-select the file that's causing this problem? When the export runs, I can see it stopping at the image above (#5385 in this case), but that number doesn't help if I can't see the image index numbers.

Jim,

It would be far better for the template to ignore files that are unknown file types.  I'll see what I can do to fix this for the next build.

Thanks,

It doesn't appear to be an unknown file type that's causing the problem, I also tried doing a Find, searching filenames for "jpg", which selected images only, and had the same problem. Is there no way for me to see an image's index number?

No.  Index numbers are internal to Photo Mechanic and are not something we want to have users worrying about.

Like I said, fixing it so that selected files that have no metadata are simply ignored will be a better solution going forward.

That would be nice. Any thoughts on how to work around it for now? For example, if index numbers are assigned to images in the order they appear in the contact sheet, I'm willing to scroll down to where the offending image is and de-select it, say by counting the images in each row and then counting rows manually.
