Hello Team VUO. Loving the new version although still struggling a bit with instability issues (I've filed a crash report).
I have uploaded a composition here that I've been working on for my lighting design students to use. It runs well in VUO, but when I export to an APP, the app either won't run at all, or running very slowly until it eventually crashes.
●●●○ — It prevents me from completing a specific task with Vuo.
Steps causing the bug to occur:
save it to the user folder
composition runs perfectly
export app, it won't run properly (extremely slow)
then VUO will no longer open without a restart of laptop
Have you found a workaround?:
No, well, except to reboot.
The crash log I have included is just one of many as I'm trying to find a work-around. Perhaps I am building my sub-compositions incorrectly, but I have found V2.0 to be be very unstable in regards to sub-compositions and nodes in the user library.
Thank you in advance for any help/advice you can offer.
Thank you. That was definitely the issue. Once I moved the 'User Library Folder' all is working as it should. I spent some time moving nodes back into the library one at a time, and did experience the crash problem again, but it isn't clear if its community nodes or my version 1.2 sub-compositions that are causing the crash. I will do some more exploring before I upload the whole folder.
But again, thank you for getting me up and running.
First thank you for 2.0. I have been looking forward to this release, and I'm excited to introduce it to my students in January.
A problem though . . . I have downloaded the beta version of 2.0, and finding that it crashes about 2 seconds into the opening sequence. The splash screen comes up, and then nothing. Occasionally I have been able to get it running from a restart of my laptop, but once it crashes on opening, it will not run again.
