Error only with Random Dot Kinematogram ( RDK ) stimulus

If this template helps then use it. If not then just delete and start from scratch.

OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 19042)
PsychoPy version: 2021.1.4
Standard Standalone? Yes

Hi everyone! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I am using the Builder and I tried running the Random dots Kinematogram stimulus, but an error occurs always, even with default parameters!!


Hello from the pygame community.
1.0825 WARNING We strongly recommend you activate the PTB sound engine in PsychoPy prefs as the preferred audio engine. Its timing is vastly superior. Your prefs are currently set to use [‘sounddevice’, ‘PTB’, ‘pyo’, ‘pygame’] (in that order).

Experiment ended.

this likely explains the underlying problem, and a temporary solution.

Another kind of temporary solution is use the function int().I think that works great too!
