As the title says - totally random.

 

The only plugins used in the session were Shape 3D and Texture Object Rounder ... none of Curtis's

 

Clicking on the canvas caused a crash with this error message.  Despite not going to Effects at all to access any plugins that may have caused it

Looks like it's trying to access a class that it shouldn't have been, which has since been moved. The plugin will need to be fixed.

Does that mean there could be a random crash again despite not even opening one of Curtis's plugins when the above happened. 

In fact as I said, no plugin was being used, just clicking on the canvas

 

Shame his effects are bundled into 3 dll's - I only ever use Tile Image

You could always use my Effects > Paste > From file... plugin. It has many tile options.

Yep I've used it in a tutorial I'm finishing off.  Very handy (and it's cousin Fill from Clipboard)

 

Thinking about it I only use Tile Image to achieve the effect you can now use Gradient Tool >>> Repeat Reflect/ Repeat Wrapped for.

I think I'll bin the curtis dll's off

 

It was a stranger crash than the time a sheep jumped over a hedge ...

I've been wanting to post that I too have been having lots of crashes lately when using Shape 3D and sometimes with Alpha Mask ............ But, I hadn't done so yet, because I'm not getting any crash logs.  The screen just freezes and then PDN shuts down.

I can't say I've experienced crashes with either of them.  But ...

 

Alpha Mask has definitely changed since the updates.  Before,  you could just have a black mask >>> Alpha Mask >>> From Clipboard - Invert Mask ... smooth as a babies proverbial.  Now it's jaggier than a cliff face ( OK slight exaggeration)  Thankfully BoltBait's Switch Alpha to Gray on the mask gives smooth results (quicker than adding a white layer below and merging your mask and white together)

 

Or the strange one.  Write text in any colour.  Make B & W ... Brightness to Contrast so it's fully 0 0 0 - Alpha Mask won't work unless it's got a white background.  I 've lost a few brain cells through chemicals lately so not sure if it's always been like that ?

 

Shape 3D ... I don't know if it's my impatience or my imagination, but I'm sure rendering has slowed down ... but got no evidence to back myself up

If nobody reports crashes... I won't know about them. Can't fix them.

I didn't get any crash logs when it happened, so I've been clearing out my Plugins and will keep trying.  If it keeps happening, I will definitely report back :)
