View Full Version : Layout 11.0.3 and 11.5 Crash when trying to create a UV map

10-01-2013, 03:42 PM
Both Modeler and Layout have been crashing quite frequently lately. Specifically, when I try to create an Atlas UV map for a terrain model I have, it crashes every time when using either Modeler 11.0.3 or 11.5.

Might as well move up to 11.6, since it's free.

But: is it possible to create a UV map in Layout (subject line)? Is that a baker thing? I've always made mine in LWM, but I have very limited use for them.

Can you tell more about the object ? Post a screenshot ?

Have you verified that there be no overlap polygons and 2 points polygons ? A merge points ?

Can you post the object ?

If he's already having crashing issues, and seeking stability, moving to a pre-release (11.6) seems like a questionable choice.

Fair enough, but we could use more more details.

AND if other object have no crashing issues, the object file should be submitted to NewTek as a "poison file"-- any data file capable of crashing the app. Ideally, that would never happen-- in a perfect world data would be vetted and/or handled in such a way that the app would reject the pathological portions and only use the bits (ha!) that it can understand/parse without crashing.

Having "poison files" in hand allows the devs to code more robust data checking, because if a poison file is even POSSIBLE, it's pretty obvious the data is not being vetted enough.

Move to 11.5.1. Looks to me like the best option if you want to switch versions. Even a better option is to check is there some faulty geometry in the object like double polys etc.
