View Full Version : Some references cause referencing file to crash when closing

06 June 2007, 08:44 PM
I've frequently encountered situations where I am referencing certain other maya files and the referencing file crashes on close.

That is, file A has a reference pointing to file B and file A crashes every time I close file A. However, overwriting file B with a new, empty maya file allows file A to open and close without crashing.

Deleting all history in both files doesn't solve the problem. Exporting file B to an OBJ and re-importing into a new maya file is the only solution I've found, but this is not ideal because it's happening to me quite often.

Does anyone know what I might be able to do to file B to make file A more stable? Has anyone else had the "crash on close" bug with files that use references?

Your problem may be because of failed edits on the referenced file.

While the references are still loaded can you try "File -> Clean Up Reference" from the reference editor?

It would be great if you have a file that you could share which demonstrates the problem. Send me a message if you can and we can look into it further.
