I believe this has been discussed before, but I’m afraid I am not currently able to find the forum post regarding it.
In Panda 1.2.3, I have a .mf file containing a few .bams and several .rgb textures referenced by the bams. When I create the file using the defult -z compression and then attempt to load one of the bams from the file, my Panda session collapses (i.e. shell quits instead of entering interactive mode) on the following error:
:pnmimage(error): seek error for offset 49664
If I do not compress the .mf when I create it, the bams load fine.
Is there a solution to this problem known, or has it been resolved in a later version?
