Hi Peter,

after installing CTA5 and first evaluations, I am a bit confused about the external editor workflow.
In CTA4 I could transfer one of the standard characters to e.g. Photoshop, change certain details und have them updated in CTA4.
Now in CTA5 the option to edit a character in an external editor is greyed out. Besides the new tutorials about SVG workflow only explain how to import externally created characters into CTA5 but not a way to modify existing characters in an external SVG editor.
Can you tell me more about this?

Kind regards
Hartmut

Hi Peter,
Have the Reallusion Support Team given any reason response for to this issue or have they just assumed that anyone buying CTA5 are newbies with no experience.

Cheers .... Emlyn
