Did you manage to run the animation in v2018. If so, and under AnimationLab Options/preferences you had "Save drawing before running scenario" ticked, it would save the file in v2018 format.
How did you get Al in 2018, did IMSI supply a file, or did you copy the palette from 2017. I only ask because I have not seen an updated AL for 2018 (and the IMIS website still says AL is for v21 to 2017).
As for crashing, I couldn't try your scenario in Lightworks before because I didn't have it for 2017. I just tried in 2018 64bit, AL palette closed, TC closed. opened TC, opened your file, rendered GDI mode - lightworks advanced render, opened AL palette, animated ok, no crash.
## Edit ## Ok. played around with a few settings from the other thread, and got it to crash (freeze) by ticking open GL hardware acceleration, as Dean noticed in your other thread. Whether its Lightworks, OpenGL or AL, that causes the problem I've no idea. ## End Edit ##
