OSX hard freeze while building mesh
« on: February 27, 2014, 10:49:21 PM »
Hi,

I'm having a consistent freeze while trying to build a mesh in 1.02 on osx.  This is on a retina macbook with a 650M with 1024 mb.

The computer hard freezes.  The mouse stops working - kaput.  I need to hold down the power button to restart.

Thanks,
Casey

Hi Casey,

I'm running the same hardware and haven't had any hard freeze issues with PS 1.02. I'm on 10.9.2 Mavericks, btw.
Does it work fine in older versions for you? Are you trying to run an extreme process? (ie. ultra res, lots of images)

You could try opening the Mac Console app and keep an eye on it when you fire off your process to see if something unusual appears before the whole thing locks up.

Cheers, -Chad

I'm runniing the console on a new mesh.

It is large - 77 mil pts.

It only fails at the build mesh stage.  Could deactivating the gpu stuff make a difference?
