I was recreating one of the particle emissions from the Content Repository that uses a FLIP domain and a simple emission with wind. I loved the curling effect and got some really cool shapes that I wanted to make solid with the Skinner object.
Since I'm on a 5k iMac with an AMD card (R9 w/4gb), Cycles has been spotty at best with OpenCL so I've just been using CPU for rendering and realtime viewport. Even using those settings, once I hit render in the main viewport it would render, but if I clicked anywhere during the render to stop it, it freezes Cinema. Sometimes it happens when changing render settings, other times when clicking on a material to change it's mapping. It doesn't crash when editing Nodes.
I restarted Cinema, tried the same file and still get multiple crashes. I created a new file with a similar setup and as soon as the Skinner comes into play, using Cycles as the renderer, it gets very unstable, with crash after crash. I repeated this on my home machine, an older iMac with a CUDA card and same thing: once a skinner is introduced, using Cycles, it crashes the same ways.
Otherwise, not using the Skinner object, but using Cycles, I've had very little problems. I'm hoping this is fixed in X-Particles 4 using the new OVDB object instead.
I sent the crash report (one of them) to Maxon and they replied saying it was the Cycles plugin.
I've attached the scene to help diagnose this repeatable crash.
