Tutorial Crash

I am going through the tutorial in the manual and the program continues to crash in step 2 of lesson 2 on pages 63-64 when I create a new swatch and click gradient, radial.

I have tried many different preferences setting after reading postings on the forum (e.g. changing opengl to direct3d etc.).

This happens every time I click on radial.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Hi David,

This issue as been addressed in the upcoming patch. Although this issue is specific to the tutorial files and you should not have such issue with new scenes.

Best regards,


I seem to recall that it wouldn’t crash if I first moved the sliders in linear mode before I switched to a radial gradiant, but it’s been awhile since I’ve done that tutorial. I know the crash seemed to happen when I moved the slider, but only if it was in radiant instead of linear mode.
