Compound load problem

Hi everybody. I have a problem that never appear before. I've downloaded the compounds by Jason Brown.

I've extracted and added the folder on user/xxx/Autodesk/compounds/ folder on windows(ok c:/ and so on)

When i hit tab and type scatter i don't see the jason compounds, but in the bifrost browser yes.

This is on windows pc at work. So i've tested on my mac at home and the problem is there too.

So whats i'm wrong? I've tried on put the content of the folder inside the main compounds, but this remove the compounds from the graph(remove only the icon and i think the procedure) but the name remain.

Someone has encounter on this problem?

Yes @mjcg91 The path is this. Sorry i was type by mac(my ignorance on where i find the key)

But yes the path is this on pc windows and equivalent on the mac. But the other compounds works on mac and windows. Is only the 3 downloaded compound made by Jason that won't works.

What does it says in the logs? If other compounds from the same location are working, there must be an error message or something.

Now I remove all the compound inside here: C:\Users\XXXXXX\Autodesk\Bifrost\Compounds\ and added only the Jason compounds. And the problem is the same i have onlyinside bifrost Browser and not call them inside graph.

They are graphs in Browser. ahhh this is my ignorance. The graph are in Browser, like yours or Autodesk or BruceLee and so on. But i'm shure that there are also called by tab inside the graphs. So to me is strange and controversial.

So this is supposed to be only a graph?

yes, Graphs are in the Bifrost Browser. Compounds are in the tab search menu.

Actually graphs where also in the tab search menu before but they are now hidden, and I think it was a very good choice to hide them. Graphs are usually high level samples so they do not belong in the tab search menu.

Ok. I've downloaded this: https://area.autodesk.com/downloads/scatter-around-strand/ and the other scatter that are made by Jason Brown.

So to see them on search menu bar i should publish the compound that came with the graph as my own Compound?
