Texture Import Crash

Recommended Posts

I've been experiencing a VW crash after importing new textures for mapping. These are small .jpeg or .tiff files 1-2 mb at most. I usually get one imported without issue. I'll import a second texture and get through all but the last prompt, then the program will crash while attempting to show the new texture in the resource browser. I am updated with SP3 in 2008, have PLENTY of ram etc. Anyone having this problem or know a solution?

Hello ED08:

Can you attach the image files to the post? What OS?

It would not be expected for the app to crash when importing 2MB image files.

Version 12 had a limitation of images less than 4096 pixels wide, but 2008 and 2009 do not have image width limitations.

The specific image file itself doesn't seem to matter (it will happen on many different jobs with different images).

I'm using OS X 10.5.1.

Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5 w/ 5 GB ram.

I have VW SP 3 installed.

I'm seem to be noticing the crash when I have multiple applications running (by trail and error I've tried quitting a few it will crash alot less).

Have you heard of any application conflicts-excell or adobe acrobat to be specific?

I'm starting to suspect a problem with my machine and not a VW issue.
