GSD file error
« on: June 06, 2017, 06:30:13 PM »

I am trying to use Ovito to visualize HOOMD GSD files, but when I try to do a local load file in both the most recent stable Ovito version and the development version, I get the following error:  "The source location is empty or has not been set (no files found)."  I seem to be able to correctly visualize other file formats, and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the source of this error, as it does not appear to be highly-documented.  In the Ovito source code, it seems to imply some kind of incorrect initialization, and I was wondering if there is some information I am not correctly writing out from HOOMD.

Thank you very much.

It would be great if you could post an example GSD file that leads to the error message that you describe. I will then check what is going on. Thanks.
