Has anyone else successfully reloaded scenes containing Genesis content with the current beta of Carrara on Mac?
I created a relatively simple scene - one Genesis figure, V4 hair, two pieces of clothing, one Genesis and one V4 - and saved it.
When I attempted to reload it, Carrara displayed a progress dialog for a short period, and then went into some kind of indeterminate state. No scene is displayed, and the user interface is non-responsive. Carrara is, however, still running and apparently not hung.
I tried a second time and watched Carrara’s processor usage using Activity Monitor. Initially, it showed a usage of about 95% CPU, spiking to just over 100%, at which point it became briefly unresponsive. Then, about the time that the progress dialog disappeared, it fell off to just 1-2% CPU, and has remained that way ever since.
The DazTmp folder (where Carrara and DAZ Studio put their temporary files) contains a single new temporary file, which is 0 bytes in length.
I don’t think Carrara has strictly crashed or hung - it’s still considered to be ‘responding’ by the operating system. However, I don’t think it’s ever going to finish loading the scene.
Does this fit with other people’s experience of using Genesis on Carrara/Mac, or do you find that it works successfully for you? I haven’t had a lot of luck with it so far.
I’m running the 64-bit version of Carrara on a 2.3GHz i7 box with 16GB of RAM, Mountain Lion 10.8.1.
