Anyone know what this error is about? 

You cannot view this attachment.

If I open the sequence all is good, but if I batch render I get this error all the time.  Does not seem to matter which answer I choose.


This usually means that there was a change to a sequence but you didn't save that change. Opening a single sequence and selecting Yes OR No and then Saving it will clear that up the next time you open that sequence (until you make a change). Batch Render will NOT save the changes but gives you the option to select which "version" you want to render to.
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.


What process creates the Autosaved file?  I did add a new prop recently, then opened each sequence individually, added the prop to the "Display Elements", and saved (which rendered the sequence).  I opened the sequence several times after and all was good.

Later, I installed the prop and was off two lights from my original guess.  The string was not exactly 4" from light to light and I had to adjust a couple of lights.  I modified the light string and added a couple of lights to the count.  Then hit "Batch Render".  I get this error and have to answer after every single sequence processes.  It does not matter if I answer yes or no, as the results seem to be the same.  It renders the correct light count.

xLights will "auto save" a backup file based on the interval set in the preferences. If there have been ANY changes from the original file and the autosaved backup, xLights will give you the option to "recover" any potential lost changes....If you don't save after opening the file, then there is still a difference in versions and will get that prompt again. This is so that you can recover which ever version you want in case of crashes or user errors!.

I have seen that error several times when I was modifying a sequence and did not close out properly, but that is not the case.  I am only going to the layout page and changing the light string count.  In the past, I could select "Batch Render" and it would render all of the sequences with the new layout information, and I did not have to open them individually one at a time...Easy-peasy.  It is either a bug, or something to do with xlights auto-config/DDP, instead of manually assigning E1.31.

I am only seeing this error when using the "Batch Render" feature.  I could maybe understand it noticing a new layout once, but not sure why it needs to prompt me for every single sequence it renders.  It is not holding me up, other than the "Batch Render" is not very handy any more.
