I can't really reproduce crash in current releases, but can see the crash with current master. And there i need some inputs from @dfelinto.
I believe you already heard of the material library i was referring to: it's Online Material Library addon from @petercassetta. It is actually in the Testing category of addons in Blender. You can find it there: https://developer.blender.org/diffusion/BAC/browse/master/online_mat_lib/
There are two things here:
License CC-0 for materials and GPL or maybe even BSD for addon, I'm not sure, but without any proprietal.
Lukas, mind looking into the report? Thanks! :)
@TrueCryer, are you proposing the addon for inclusion into Blender? If so, few questions:
Hi, it seems I must have missed your message somehow, sorry about that. My original project is indeed unsupported right now, as during 2013/2014 my family moved, and I started college, which as you can imagine, cut into my free time to work on projects like this pretty heavily.
However, I would love to collaborate on a Blender material library add-on project going forward. Feel free to message me; alternatively, I can jump on #blendercoders IRC to discuss further if you'd like. Thanks!
It's not really a bug, but a specific of how apply scale works for curves. The thing here is: apply scale will try to do everything to keep shape of the object in the world space and since shape of curves actually depends on radius of the curve radius is being scaled as well. This works as expected in cases when you i.e. have bevel object and wants Apply Scale to keep the shape of your object untouched.
In order to figure out whether it is opengl issue or not, download opengl32.dll from ftp://ftp.blender.org/sergey/softwaregl/ and put it next to blender.exe. This will switch blender to fully software opengl mode which is slower but is free from driver/videocard specific issues.
Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately the problem is not just with the single corrupted file. Some of Blend4Web demos are affected too. In Blend4Web SDK we have hundreds of files, so it would be very helpful to have some method to know if the file is corrupted or not, and another method to fix the issue. Our guys will look at this in details, but I fear some really bad things just have happened.
Any updates here Lukas? If this should go in for 2.75, we need an update pretty soon.
