No news since one week…

I can confirm the same error on Blender 2.78. I've added some screenshots and a .blend file that is raising this error for me, though it also happens with the startup file.

Just upgraded to 2.79b and got the exact same error:

Kind regards,


@Arjan Pottjewijd (Cuflee) Please open a new report, with all required information (in that case, precise steps and all data (like image files) need to reproduce the issue are mandatory). Resurrecting years old reports is generally a bad idea, code has changed a lot since then (you may reference an older report in a new one, though).

Also please try with blender2.8 from the buildbot, 2.7x scripts are not really maintained anymore…
