Short description of error
Grease Pencil 2.82 version file with Blur Fx is crashing Blender 2.83 while loading. I tested it with the Grease Pencil Branch, and it is also the same problem there.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
In the properties panel, try to slide the focus_blur parameters. Not all of them cause crash though.

I cannot reproduce it.

Could you provide me a 2.82 test file with the crash?

2.82a seems to have fixed part of the problem. The steps listed in the original message doesn't seem to cause a crash. However the problem persists with older files created in 2.82.
This file (uploaded) was originally created in 2.82. After I saved it again from 2.82a, it seems to open fine in 2.83. But as soon as I try to tweak the Blur (Renamed to "Focus_Blur") parameters it crashes.

The problem is not limited to Blur Fx apparently. Trying to scrub the values on Rim Fx also causes a CRASH.

I narrowed the problem down to Fill Shapes (any area filled with the "Fill Bucket Tool"). Fill shapes seems to be unstable and causing random crashes. In the same file I originally uploaded (B28_GP_TwoGuysYelling2.blend), if you delete the fill shape ("Mat" material) crashes seems to disappear. Although, there is still a flicker when scrubbing the values on either Fx parameter.

Thank you very much for all the great work!!!!

The problem is more general opening 2.82 files, not related to Blur only or VFX. We are looking to try to find the bug.

I am also getting crashes when using Fill Bucket tool within a 2.83 project.
