Chuck Ocheret (smart61) added a comment to T60124: Multires modifier not reading data from external files.

Yes. Good point. Anyway, I'm grateful for the quick fix here. And hope we can get the newly encountered problems sorted too. This is especially painful for me since the 2.79 branch does not work at all on my MacBook Pro anymore at this point, which means I can only run 2.79 on WIndows, which I don't have on a laptop.

Not sure if I should put this here. But I created a new bug report https://developer.blender.org/T60163 because even though the issue here was fixed quickly (thanks!) and closed, it introduced new problems. So this mechanism is still not very usable.

Minor point... This came up as a result of SculptJanuary. Tons of people are trying out Blender 2.8 for this and a bunch of people have responded that they've experienced this bug. I published a tip last year about using external multires data so that we can keep all of the files on GitHub. If you pack all the data internally, then .blend files generally grow too large for vanilla GitHub. But with external multires you get a bunch of files that don't go beyond their file limits. So we're going back to 2.79 for detail sculpt passes/baking until this is fixed.

I am adding a sample .blend and the associated .btx file. From debugging it looks like the .btx file is referenced with a relative path so just putting them in the same directory and opening the .blend should demonstrate the problem. Remember, saving the .blend file might overwrite the .btx file. So copy Cube.btx to Cube.btx.sav or something so you can keep trying as you debug.

Chuck Ocheret (smart61) added a comment to T57069: Dual Screen Screen scaling/startup.

Same thing has been happening for me on Mojave for ages. Still happening with the daily build and my local build for 2.79. Does not happen for 2.8. I have the most recent 2018 MacBook Pro running Mojave. It happens whether or not I'm just using the laptop screen or if I hook up an external thunderbolt display with or without screen mirroring. If there is any more info I can provide I am happy to help by debugging in Xcode on my system live or whatever. Just tell me what you need. It basically forces me to run Blender 2.79 on my Windows system, which makes me sad.

Chuck Ocheret (smart61) added a comment to T56275: Blender ID Authentication fails due to lack of SSL module.

Quick update... Interestingly the brew openssl appears to break a a number of things in MacOS so I had to back it out. In other words it isn't the best workaround for the problem. I just downloaded the daily build. I can't tell if this problem is still there because now the 'requests' module is missing from Python. This has been a problem in the past (I reported it for a production release a long time ago) but I haven't seen it in a while.

Is there anyway to get someone to address this? This problem with the Mac daily build has persisted for a while (I only reported it after it remained broken for a few weeks). I have built Blender on my Mac at home and it exhibits the same problem. Not having SSL working means no access to Blender Cloud from the daily build and breaks things like the SketchFab uploader, several cloud rendering frameworks, etc... Is it more than a build config issue?

I noticed that this may be related to another tracked issue - https://developer.blender.org/T54506 (Not sure if there's a better way to refer to it). Glad it isn't an explicit security issue despite the erroneous logged-in status. It is quite a painful problem for me at the moment because I have 3 classes w/ 90 students trying to wrap up Summer work and use the new Principled Hair BSDF and we depend on SSL for a number of plug-ins including our render farm setup.

@Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) Sorry about change the priority. Given that there might be a security issue (as described above on Aug 14) I felt it should be escalated. The problem persists today with the latest Mac build at builder.blender.org - https://builder.blender.org/download//blender-2.79-eebc292b424-OSX-10.9-x86_64.zip. I recall that this problem has recurred multiple times in the past with various Python modules not being available, including the SSL module.

This is still a problem in today's build and it exhibits the same security issue I reported yesterday. Please check today's Mac build at https://builder.blender.org/download//blender-2.79-a9700e7ad27-OSX-10.9-x86_64.zip.

I downloaded the 2.79 build just now https://builder.blender.org/download//blender-2.79-c19ddcc975f-OSX-10.9-x86_64.zip, which appears to be the Aug 10 build. I had slightly different symptoms today, which make me a little more nervous.
