Constantly reverting to "Scanner" timelines rather than Projection Zones

    I am trying to combine several LD2000 shows in showtime, that were made at various different points in time as totally separate shows. I am starting with one show, and then saving the modules from the other shows as separate files and adding them in manually, along with the associated laser frames.

    When I start, at the scene level, the program is using "projection zones" i.e. I can pick and choose which projection zone to use for each track on the timeline. When I have added in modules from other shows, it seems to work fine and still be using projection zones ok. However when I save everything, and come back to it later, suddently the whole project, and all the shows/modules/scenes within it are using the older "scanner" timelines at the module level, which means I cannot use the projection zones within the scenes any more.

    I have done this several times, and it keep on reverting to scanner timelines whatever I do. How can I stop this? As far as I can see, none of the modules I am adding came from projects with scanner timelines. It is annoying because the "scanner" timelines method of building a show is rubbish compared with projection zones, so I want to stop this happening.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Have you tried saving a show-specific zone file?

    Zone settings are not saved along with a show by default.

    Please make arrangements to send your module files as well as your combined show file to Pangolin for examination.

    Yes I have saved a zone file, but this problem is to do with having no access to the zones in the first place on the timeline, not that they are set up wrongly.

    OK I will send some files over to Pangolin.
