V 3.x.x freezes or crashes the computer

On my Mac Pro 2019 (Mac OS 13, AMD Radeon Pro W5700X 16 GB) version 3.x.x is very unstable.
Sometimes freezee or complete crashes the computer
Compared to version 2.6.4, the results are not convincing and significantly slower than v. 2.6.4.
I also miss the setting options and the compare button. For me, VAI 2.6.4 is the better choice at the moment.

Had freezes too.

Now I got a memory error and V3 stopped. Multiple times.
Free space is OK on HD, so it looks like a bug. Maybe related to just one movie file here.
Currently another job is running, this now works, but its at least 3 times slower than V2
MacMini M1

with the update to v 3.0.3 the app is still unstable and crashes frequently.

Moved back to 2.64 (which is stable and snappier)
3.0.3 crashed on finishing a 3 day render job, had an error with a red x, clicking on to see the error message crashed the app. The movie file seems OK, so it happend after finalisation.
Then I loaded a 4k movie which needed sharpening, on every preview the app crashed.
Same file in 2.64 works.
3.0.3 also threw many ffmpeg errors on other movies, very unstable and not usable.
I always reboot the machine after each render job, even with low mem settings at the end it starts to use swap (16 and 24gig M1/M2 Macs)

I’m having the same issues with the program crashing. It was recommended that I use version 2.64 for my computer (intel processor). How do I go back to a previous version?

I’ve had some terrible stability issues on 3.0.4 - doesn’t seem able to go for longer than a few minutes without crashing.

The really amazing part of this is that only VEAI crashed - ffmpeg is still chugging along in the background and producing output PNGs. ffmpeg seems to have the log file open constantly, so I ended that process to see what killed VEAI, and found this:

OpenCV: terminate handler is called! The last OpenCV error is:
OpenCV(4.5.5) Error: Insufficient memory (Failed to allocate 12441600 bytes) in cv::OutOfMemoryError, file C:\.conan\46d7a7\1\source_subfolder\modules\core\src\alloc.cpp, line 73

Same here. Crashing, crashing, crashing, crashing… Why on earth was this new version released to the public, I don’t get it. Far from stable. Beta at best. And I’m on version 3.04 now. 3 crashes within 30 minutes.

I’m on 3.04. When I load an MP4 file and ask for even a 2x enlargement, the program evaporates to the desktop. I am going to go back to the prior version. There have been a few instances where I would have to go to a video driver which my Avid system will not support.

Also having crashing problems on 3.0.4. Tried to process a video overnight and it froze the computer about an hour into a six hour job.

3.0.4 is still crashing.
Had 3 freezes of the app when working and 2 crashes.
Render jobs here are on a MacMini M1, 16gig. 4k upscales with mostly 3 days render time.
Memory use set to 50% to avoid 1-2gig swap use.

It seems to run better on my M2 MacBookAir 24gig.
Render jobs here are usually 36h to 3 days for each movie, so crashes cost a lot of time.
