Crash when switching render slots while render is in progress
Closed, ResolvedPublic


System Information
Operating system: macOS-11.3-x86_64-i386-64bit 64 Bits
Graphics card: AMD Radeon Pro 5500M OpenGL Engine ATI Technologies Inc. 4.1 ATI-4.4.17

Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.93.0 Beta, branch: master, commit date: 2021-05-01 15:22, hash: rB7c5e00965533
Worked: 2.91.2

Short description of error
When a render is in progress, if I press J a few times to cycle between render slots, Blender wil crash.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Default scene
Switch from Eevee to Cycles
Press F12 to render
In the render view, press J to switch render slots a few times while the render is in progress; Blender will invariably crash after doing this a few times (sometimes up to 10-20 times, sometimes faster).

Event Timeline

I just want to say that I can reproduce this issue on Linux with a Nvidia GPU in 2.92, 2.93 and 3.0. But I'll leave the triaging of this report to others.

Python backtrace

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) changed the task status from Needs Triage to Confirmed.Mon, May 3, 3:42 PM
Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) claimed this task.

Can confirm, will check.

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) triaged this task as High priority.

Apparently rBb4f0d5247338 is not safe all the way, I am entering GPU_texture_mipmap_mode with a NULL tex

Will step down though, @Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) or @Jeroen Bakker (jbakker) are probably faster fixing this.

Will dare setting this to High prio, it has been around since 2.92, but it is a regression and an operation that is done pretty often I think.

@Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk), I can't reproduce the crash in latest master (rB9f1e20e7).

From the code, it's not clear to me how tex can become NULL in GPU_texture_mipmap_mode?

if (*tex) {
  GPU_texture_wrap_mode(*tex, true, false);

  if (GPU_mipmap_enabled()) {
    if (ima) {
      ima->gpuflag |= IMA_GPU_MIPMAP_COMPLETE;
    GPU_texture_mipmap_mode(*tex, true, true);
  else {
    GPU_texture_mipmap_mode(*tex, false, true);

This is what happens here (this time I had to hammer J quite often, but it can happen with less presses, too):

could this be freed from another thread or so?

I could reproduce now, you're right about the threads.
