FUSION FREEZES AGAIN!

PostThu Nov 07, 2019 4:03 am

Again I must complain about Fusion crashes with particle systems

After having lost three days of work, I started a new project with 16.1.1. I have a simple particle system effect, saved yesterday was happy with the result.

I now open the project today, the edit plays through, but when I go to the Fusion page it has black panels and seems frozen. In fact other fusion clips in this project WITHOUT particle systems are doing the same thing on the Fusion page: blank panels.

Would you people PLEASE fix these bugs?? I have a support case raised, but no one gets back to me with answers. Nothing gets better with the releases.

I cannot waste time like this. I gave this an honest try but I cannot as a professional keep losing days of work.

Attached find the screenshot.

How do I RECOVER my work?

Im close to abandoning this product and asking for my6 money back.

All I can suggest is that you try using Fusion 9 instead of Fusion 16. I have the occasional crashes with F9 (mainly when doing tracking operations) but haven't had issues with its particle system.

Newest isn't always best :-)

Yesterday I upgraded to NVIDIA 441.12.

Does this have something to do with it!!!??

I cannot get the Fusion page to initialize, even with a new project.

Rolled back driver, no difference.

THIS IS MADDENING! ONE DAY THIS PRODUCT WORKS, THE NEXT DAY IT DOESN'T.

Yes 16.1.1 is a step back compared to 16.1 and MANY steps back compared to Fusion 9
I'm actually using 16.1 and the main 2 BAD things are:
1 - Beautiful but frustrating and non very productive user interface
2 - Playback cache very slow against FU9/FU8

Please BMD give us back the REAL power of FUSION with complete UI elements (including F4) and the stability of the first Fusion versions! :cry:

As I said... I've been a Fusion 9 user for nearly 18 months and never had a "fatal" crash like yours. When F9 does crash, reloading the project allows me to carry on from the last saved point. As a result, I've never lost more than 10 minutes work.

Unless there's a "must have" feature in version 16, try 9, it might work better for you.

Re: FUSION FREEZES AGAIN! - FIXED!

It occurred to me to try something totally nonsensical to fix this. My background as a software engineer led me to believe that perhaps the Fusion Page panel layout data was somehow corrupted.

I went to the menu and selected Workspace...Reset UI Layout.

Solved the issue.

That makes sense... the UI is quite a bit different in F16 compared to good old F9. I guess they may have introduced a bug or two.
