Description Dmitry Kazakov 2018-11-23 12:17:38 UTC

Krita silently crashes without generating a crashlog. DebugView says nothing.

1. Activate openGL (on my system it crashes with angle only, on the reporter's system it crashes on normal openGL)
2. Activate cache animation to disk option (activated by default)
3. Open a file with about 150 real (non-hold) fullhd frames
4. Press Play button to start regeneration of the cache

Krita silently crashes.


1) Crash happens on Windows-only. On Linux it works fine with the same file.
2) Crash doesn't happen when cache-to-memory feature is selected
3) ROI and limit frame size options don't affect the crash

(the file I used for testing is not for publishing, but it seems like it is not file-specific since multiple people could reproduce it)

On the black monster, I get a safe assert in KisAsyncAnimationRendererBase.cpp, line 128

Disable the cache backend on Windows

And set on-disk hard-coded to false, on Windows

Fix crash when rendering animation with a lot of frames on Windows

The problem happens because QProgressDialog::setValue() can call
QApplication::processEvents(), which causes recursive reentrancy
into the update functions, which is not nice.
