Problem solved ! I would have never thought about that.
The issue was in the file path
the folder I was working in was named %PANELS. I sometimes use special signs to have folders stay on top of a list.
Very bad idea , it seems it messes with the script as % is used a lot in code..
Some clever chap on facebook spotted it on my screenshot.

I tried yesterday but somehow it messes up my graphics
However with a bit of work on my original file it could work, seems a much better approach overall
no heavy file, not half an hour to import a 2200 dpi bitmap file to get a decent resolution.
Thanks for your help everyone !
