fluid sim modifier can crash blender
Closed, ResolvedPublic


--- Operating System, Graphics card ---
Windows 7 64bit, 16GB RAM, CPU: i7-3770,

--- Blender version with error, and version that worked ---
all tested blender 2.68 versions ... til now

--- Short description of error ---
when i turn down the final resolution setting of domain fluid sim modifier down to 7 or under, blender crashes at bake fluid.

i guess that low resolution value is more theoretical kind, but is should not crash blender anyway.

--- Steps for others to reproduce the error (preferably based on attached .blend file) ---
1. open attached blend file
2. bake fluid with resolution 8 or higher...
... blender works as expected.

3. turn down resolution down to 7 or less
4. bake fluid ...
... blender crashes.

Event Timeline

Can confirm that (though segfault does not always happen at level 7).

Daniel, I think this one is for you? Crash happens in elbeem, which makes use of dirty blackmagic macro! :p

Seems to be fixed in 60990. I tried level 1 even.

Feel free to reopen this bug report if you encounter this crash with a later version of blender.

Thanks for reporting this issue!

no, not fixed.
blender still crashes at baking lower final resolution level

tested with "" and the attached blend file, by using 6 as resolution level.
blender.exe --factory-startup -w -p 632 270 1280 720 -con

Since I have no way to reproduce the crash, I will de-assign myself from this bug.

What would help is a backtrace though.

But as I said: On windows 7 x64 it your blend file works "nicely" (it just doesn't bake anything, but doesn't crash either).

Does blender still crash with latest builds from ? And hat are the steps reproducing the crash would be then?

yes, to me, blender "" still crash in the same way as described in the initial post.
