VSE strip modifiers constantly segfaults on a .blend file converted from 2.79 to 2.80x
Closed, ArchivedPublic


In new .blend files created with 2.80x the VSE is not an issue, but in a particular file that I had originally created in Blender 2.79 (then opened+resaved in 2.80.49) the problem exists. Here is a specific list of things that I have noticed causes segfaults:

  • toggling the visibility of a strip modifier
  • adjusting any parameters of a strip modifier

It will not crash literally every time I change a modifier, but there's probably a 50% chance that the next click will crash blender. Whenever blender crashes, it writes an /tmp/intro.crash.txt file. Here is an example of crashing blender by toggling the visibility of a strip modifier (curves, in this case):

I will attach the blend file, but it depends on probably 50 GB of file system assets which I'm not going to attach.

System info:

  • Debian 10 (64 bit)
  • Thinkpad x230



Event Timeline

Can not reproduce this.

From the backtrace it seems like it crashed when reading data from video file, that would most likely be //footage_scooter\00046.MTS in this case.

Can you try to reproduce this problem with minimum possible assets (should be just file I mentioned), then if possible upload all necessary files to some cloud storage?

Okay, I'll give that a shot within the next few day(s).
