OS X issues - shaded preview is crashing Maya
on Jan 5, 2011 at 2:32:25 pm

Hello

Running a Mac Pro 12-core with a Radeon HD 5870. 24GB RAM, and the latest 10.6 OS. Maya 2011 x64 sp1.

I realize that Maya is rarely approved to run on the very latest OS revs, but I need them installed for other reasons (this machine has lots of apps installed), so I need to run Maya using this OS version.

When I switch to shaded view with textures, Maya crashes pretty quickly. I usually can only do 1 or 2 things before it dies. Then I have to open my .ma file, manually change the views back to wireframe using BBedit, and then open in Maya again.

God forbid I ever hit the 7 key by accident - guaranteed crash every time.

Is this a common issue? Is there a workaround or fix?

Thanks,

------------S

Hey Steve,

Not sure what might be causing that. Dont have the same OS and specs so I couldnt replicate it. We had somebody come through with a viewport problem they fixed by trashing their preferences. Might want to try that. Also, does it break with "high quality rendering" on?

Aside from that, might want to let Autodesk know or try the Maya forums on The Area site.
