I am working in a specific project that produces these crashes. So far, other projects with lots of E3D or otherwise are performing perfectly.
I worked on this project all afternoon yesterday, with multiple layers of E3D, offset with some slight overlap. Just an extruded text logo and a plane to cast AO and shadows on, nothing fancy... Added a light to my scene before saving and properly shutting down for the day.
This morning upon opening, my originally white scene appeared to have a purple hue and my objects were reflecting back as if the environment was rainbow glitter. Within a short time moving the current time indicator around or making simple adjustments like turning a layer on or off, even changing renderers, AE would completely disappear. The crash is so fast and immediate, there is not even a freeze or non responsive behavior, just gone.
Just now, I opened with previews disabled (caps lock), then turned off my 1 light in the scene, which was showing purple, and everything appears to be tentatively working. I was even able to make a increment render to show my boss that I'm not faking about having work done but AE keeps crashing.
Everything updatable, is up to date. Nvidia, CUDA, AE, E3Dv2, Yosemite, etc.
I am going to try deleting that light and adding a new one and see what happens next.
Has anyone run into this?
