I´ve had some issues the last couple of days, with Arena 6 unexpectedly crashing when I connect my Blackmagic capture card to the laptop.
This is my setup:
- Arena: version 6.1.4, rev65833
- laptop: MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016), 2,9 GHz Intel Core i7. 16GB memory. Graphics: Radeon Pro 460 4 GB, Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB.
- live source on stage: Marshall CV503 camera (SDI out), 75m SDI from camera to capture device (the same issue also occurred with only 20m SDI).
- capture device: Blackmagic Ultrastudio Minirecorder (SDI in). Connected to laptop with a Thunderbolt 2 cable + a Thunderbolt 2 / Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C)-adapter
Arena unexpectedly closes when I connect the capture device. After 6-7 reboots of software (and laptop), it all of a sudden starts working again. When it’s finally working, it seems stabile as long as the capture card is connected.
I´ve tried rebooting both computer and software in different ways - with all inputs/outputs attached / with no devices attached / switching ports for my devices ++. When booting the software without the capture device connected, Arena seems to work fine untill I connect the capture card and the software closes immediately.
This setup worked just fine earlier this week, before I suddenly experienced the first crash two days ago.
No heavy effects running, just one live input layer with opacity going up / down in the different columns throughout my show, plus one brightness/contrast effect for color adjustments.
Any thoughts on what might cause the crashes?
