No crash here.

Are you possibly running out of RAM?
Could you provide crash logs?

I will send the crash log when im home.

Ram should be enough, I have 32gb.

Does the file crash I attached? Tried it again on my office pc and it also crashes at 144 frames.

Sorry I cant find the Crash log. There's nothing in the temp folder

Hi, do you already know whats the problem? Do you need some infos from me?

Someone suggested on my post to downgrade to version 2.9, it worked for me from what I tested out.

Oh yeah. 2.90.0 works so far nice! Baking with a res of 256 / 200 frames and it didnt crash. Ill try to bake with 512 res soon.
