Short description of error
Blender crashes on the second render that uses eevee.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Use any file, including the default scene.
  2. Render a frame using eevee, then do it again.

It's the second eevee render since opening blender, not since opening the file. Cycles works fine.

It feels like a High Sierra problem.

@Dec B (cheetahspots) If you can, try to update your system to the latest supported MacOS version.

May I also ask you to test the latest 2.91 build? We added debugging functionality that may help.

You can use the the --debug-gpu option and attach the log here. Also a crash log would help.
