Short description of error
Moving to the next frame on the timeline causes blender to crash.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
I open

(which has a baked smoke sim on my machine), Z -> rendered, then move to the timeline and Right arrow. Boom.

This is my first bug submission on this project, let me know if I should provide other information, etc. Thanks!



Event Timeline

Forgot the full system info if needed.

Cannot reproduce here.
First I thought it was a duplicate of T58471 (but now I cannot reproduce that other report either anymore...)

I can't reproduce it either..

@Fred Gobry (chbug), can you reproduce this issue in new files as well?
Maybe also try a newer Blender version.

If you have access to another computer, you can also try it there to see if this problem is specific to your computer.

I'll try to reproduce with an even more recent build than 0208, which is the version I also used to create the sample file. Also I'll try to discard the cache and bake again. If it turns out it's related to the baked data, is there a simple way to share the 30GB of cached data, or is it even worth it?

I can still reproduce it with Blender 2.80 rel. 2019/02/13. I can also reproduce it by discarding the baked files and regenerating them. When you attempted to reproduce, did you bake the smoke sim?

I can try to start with a fresh file, but given that baking takes 20 minutes, I might get lucky but if I need to fiddle with lots of parameters it might take a long time to set things up the same way. Given that the failing file was generated with rel. 2019/02/08, is there a solid reason to expect it to be any different anyways?

Alternatively, if you have pointers on how to extract a stack trace of the crash on a windows machine, I can try to do that. I'm more familiar with development on linux systems, but my beefier machine runs Windows.

Does it not crash if you download this dll and copy it so its located in the same directory as 'blender.exe' and run Blender normally?
