View Full Version : Crash after completing preview (8.5 & OS X 10.4.6)

05-23-2006, 02:40 PM
Layout crashes each and every time I hit 'End Preview' after creating and playing a preview, even in an empty scene. Lightwave 8.5, OS X 10.4.6 and Quicktime 7.1 (although the problem was present before upgrading quicktime to 7.1). Trashing all the prefs makes no difference. Has anybody experienced similar problems, or even better, does someone have a fix?

This is a long standing prob in 8.5. Widely reported etc, etc.

No fix, but there is a work-around, cancel your preview before it's done, find the quicktime in the programs folder and open it.

It's named CurrentPreview.mov, you could drag that file to the dock for easier access. : D

thanks, I've been using the currentpreview movie already, the dock thing is a nice idea though :)... Let's hope this gets fixed in 9...

or just render out a small movie.
you can set the render to be quickshade (which is essentially openGl)
and get the same results, saved where you want them saved.
