I just sent this message off to Vue customer support, I hope it helps someone else that has not had good stability with Vue 7.4 and Mac OSX.
I have had serious crashes with Vue 7.4 including all recent and current updates. The software would freeze and cause the entire OS to freeze up. The only solution had been to turn the computer off and restart it cold. I have seemed to find a solution that has not resulted in a crash in over 2 hours with Vue 7.4 Mac OS. Crashes were common during any terrain function editing and then some would be irregular with no pattern. My solution so far has been to set the program to open using Rosetta. This has so far given my run of tests including prolonged rendering with no crashes at this time. Please forward this information to technicians.
Please post your findings. Hopefully this is a shaft of light in the direction of the current problems with Vue 7.4 stability on Mac systems.
Update: I able to do all kinds of terrain editing, rendering, material editing, full-on ecosystem load and then render with no crashes so far. Anyone try this? Just go to the program icon for the application, right click then click ‘get info’ - then click the box next to ‘open using rosetta’.
I was even finally able to complete quadspinner’s terrain tutorial.
