View Full Version : More Node crashes: Image node

I've been able to reproduce this on a number of 64-bit machines running LW 9.3.1.

Opening the properties for an Image node that has a high-res image loaded results in Lightwave locking up for up to 30 seconds, and then crashing. With high-res, I mean 15-20k and up, that sort of thing.

The only work-arounds I've been able to find is to replace the image with a lower-resolution stand-in while you're editing the tree, or to use the Layer nodes. A Layer node with an insane-resolution image map still works fine; it's just the plain Image node that causes the crashing.

The images in questions are generally 8-bit grayscale PNGs, roughly 20k in size. I have not yet tried it with other formats or bit depths.

Can anyone else reproduce this?
