DS4.X on OS X - is it normal for it to crash a lot?
So, some of you may remember me from when I hung out a lot on these forums, a bit more than a year and a half ago now. My life's been... well, let's just say 'busy', and I haven't really been doing any rendering.
I'm starting to get back into it, though, and I'd really like to try out Genesis, and the draping cloth, and that sort of stuff - but DS Pro 4.5 is crashing on me a lot. As in, half the time, the first time I select an item in the scene and try to do anything with it, it crashes. I'd tried 4.0 when it was in beta, and had a lot of problems with it, and had loaded up 4.0 when I got it when it was free, and it had done that too. I'd think that it ought to be more stable by now - I mean, a beta I can understand problems in, but it's not a beta any more.
So... are there any known problems that cause 4.5 to crash a lot on Macs? I'm still on Snow Leopard - 10.6.8, to be precise - and DS is Pro, 18.104.22.168. Right now, I'm still mostly just using DS 3, because it's stable on my machine.
