I posted this on the old forum, but it seems to have disappeared. I'm running VW2016 SP4 on OS X 10.11.6 with Architect and RW.

I've got a brand new 27" iMac, and now (it worked perfectly on my old computer, with exactly the same software) whenever I run solar animations, it renders two frames and then gives up without an error. This happens even on a brand new file, with only a helidon object in it. I've reinstalled VW and the same behaviour occurs.

Any ideas?

Console prints out a bunch of stuff that seems relevant when I try to run one:   31/08/16 10:13:03.706 AM QuickLookSatellite[419]: [10:13:03.706] FigAtomStreamInitWithByteStreamWithSize signalled err=-12893 (kFigAtomStream_OffsetOutsideOfParent) (Offset exceeds stream length) at /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/CoreMedia_frameworks/CoreMedia-1731.15.206/Sources/Utilities/FigAtomStream.c line 305 31/08/16 10:13:03.706 AM QuickLookSatellite[419]: [10:13:03.706] FigAtomStreamInitWithByteStreamWithSize signalled err=-12893 (kFigAtomStream_OffsetOutsideOfParent) (Offset exceeds stream length) at /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/CoreMedia_frameworks/CoreMedia-1731.15.206/Sources/Utilities/FigAtomStream.c line 305 31/08/16 10:13:03.706 AM QuickLookSatellite[419]: [10:13:03.706] <<< FFR_Common >>> FigFormatReaderCreateForStreamReturningMatchingContainerLabelType: *** Could not create format reader for URL file:///Users/three/Desktop/Wellington%20March%2020.mov FileType '' MIMETYPE (null) SuggFileName (null) instantiationError = -12893 31/08/16 10:13:03.706 AM QuickLookSatellite[419]: [10:13:03.706] FigFormatReaderCreateForStreamReturningMatchingContainerLabelType signalled err=-12893 (instantiationError) (Error creating FormatReader) at /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/CoreMedia/CoreMedia-1731.15.206/Prototypes/FormatHandlers/FigFormatReader_Common.c line 2157 31/08/16 10:13:03.708 AM QuickLookSatellite[419]: [10:13:03.708] FigAtomStreamInitWithByteStreamWithSize signalled err=-12893 (kFigAtomStream_OffsetOutsideOfParent) (Offset exceeds stream length) at /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/CoreMedia_frameworks/CoreMedia-1731.15.206/Sources/Utilities/FigAtomStream.c line 305 31/08/16 10:13:03.708 AM QuickLookSatellite[419]: [10:13:03.708] FigAtomStreamInitWithByteStreamWithSize signalled err=-12893 (kFigAtomStream_OffsetOutsideOfParent) (Offset exceeds stream length) at /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/CoreMedia_frameworks/CoreMedia-1731.15.206/Sources/Utilities/FigAtomStream.c line 305 31/08/16 10:13:03.708 AM QuickLookSatellite[419]: [10:13:03.708] <<< FFR_Common >>> FigFormatReaderCreateForStreamReturningMatchingContainerLabelType: *** Could not create format reader for URL file:///Users/three/Desktop/u.mov FileType '' MIMETYPE (null) SuggFileName (null) instantiationError = -12893 31/08/16 10:13:03.708 AM QuickLookSatellite[419]: [10:13:03.708] FigFormatReaderCreateForStreamReturningMatchingContainerLabelType signalled err=-12893 (instantiationError) (Error creating FormatReader) at /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/CoreMedia/CoreMedia-1731.15.206/Prototypes/FormatHandlers/FigFormatReader_Common.c line 2157 31/08/16 10:13:03.709 AM taskgated[374]: no application identifier provided, can't use provisioning profiles [pid=956] 31/08/16 10:13:03.754 AM garcon[956]: Failed to connect (colorGridView) outlet from (NSApplication) to (NSColorPickerGridView): missing setter or instance variable 31/08/16 10:13:03.754 AM garcon[956]: Failed to connect (view) outlet from (NSApplication) to (NSColorPickerGridView): missing setter or instance variable 31/08/16 10:13:03.764 AM appleeventsd[49]: <rdar://problem/11489077> A sandboxed application with pid 956, "Dropbox Finder Integration" checked in with appleeventsd, but its code signature could not be read and validated by appleeventsd, and so it cannot receive AppleEvents targeted by name, bundle id, or signature.
