Operating system: Windows 10
Graphics card: Intel UHD Graphics 620 (Lenovo X1 Carbon Intel Core i7 16GB)
Broken: 2.80 beta
I am a noob at Blender but have been in the software business for decades, and have been using Windows and writing code for it since Version 1, around 1984. I installed Blender 2.8 beta so I can create content for Daz3D. I installed it on my laptop, a brand new Lenovo X1 Carbon with a Core i7 and 16GB memory, in C:\Program Files\ folder, in a subfolder called Blender 2.8.
The application comes up fine and I was able to do most of the basic operations.
I exported a figure from Daz3D in Wavefront OBJ format, and tried to import it into Blender. I immediately saw several Error messages, but I was unable to capture these error messages because the window containing them disappeared immediately when I moved the mouse for the Snipping tool to try and screen capture it.
I seems the error occurred in some Python code, \scripts\addons\io_scene_obj\__init__.py line 145, called from other places ... I have retried the import at least 15 times now so I can see these messages but they keep vanishing. At the end of the series of errors, I saw "sequences of dimension 0 should contain 4 items, not 3.
IMHO the fact that the error message disappears immediately like that is also a bug.
Also, the manual contains no reference to a log file. Is there one? If so it seems to be completely undocumented.
