    \"Tails\" on ild frames

    After loading some frames from a show created in software other than LD2000 I get "tails" from some points to approx. the centre of the frame.
    They appear to originate from (I 'm guessing) the last drawn point on the frame.
    If I delete that point then the whole tail disappears.
    I thought it may be something to do with "blanking" but all the settings I've tried do nothing to remove the "tails".
    Is this a known issue and how do I correct it?
    At the moment I am accessing each frame in a show and removing the originating point (which removes the "tail") manually but with some shows containing over 7,000 frames it's a time consuming process.
    Especially if some learned person can say "Click on X and they'll all disappear!". :)

    Any pointers would be appreciated.
    Thanks folks.

    Try converting the frameset to vector-oriented (with LD2000) and adjust your vector output settings and scanspeed.

    Thanks for that suggestion.
    Converting the frames to Vector Oriented reduced the total Frameset size by 50% but the "tails" are still evident.

    have you tried CTRL + E (eliminate blanking jumps) in LD?

    if this works with one frame, you can select a block of frames and 'zap' them all.....

    Hi Soforene,

    If they are ILDA frames that you got off of Photon Lexicon, then that's not surprising. I have seen many incorrectly-made ILDA frames on that web site. You might have to use a tool within the Drawing window of LD that will allow you to shift the points (I forget if it is called "shift points" or "shift colors").

    Best regards,
