# Error during Texture Atlas Manual UV Unwrap

I am using the Texture Atlas to combine UVs from multiple objects, all of which have UVs already unwrapped and laid out. To do this I am adding the objects to the atlas and then using the 'StartManualUnwrap' button. This is all following the CGCookie course on 'shading a scifi helmet'.

When I do this I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Program Files\Blender
Foundation\Blender\2.78\scripts\addons\uv_texture_atlas.py", line 214, in

Does anybody have an idea why this is happening?

I tested by just adding two of my objects to the atlas, rather than all of them, with the same outcome. I also tried starting a new blend file and unwrapping two cubes, combining them with the atlas and then performing the manual unwrap. This worked fine.

Thanks in advance.

I worked around this by starting a brand new blend file and appending all my objects from the old file.
