As a long time user and supporter I would like to give my view on this statement by Vincent.

"Second, renting is not necessarily the issue imo (a large majority of our current users are in monthly plan and never converts it to perpetual, because they want to get the latest features). It's as if saying renting a house is unfair."
I CHOOSE to pay subscription for 2 reasons only.

1 - I want access to Substance source as a way to learn Designer
2 - I actually choose to pay  the continued subscription as I feel/felt you guys deserved it and I wanted to contribute to development, even if it cost me more!,This is not true now it's going to Adobe, I just don't feel the same way I am truly sorry but that's how I feel, I feel crappy about it but...

I could have purchased a perpetual ages ago, I have been on subscription  WELL over a year.... closer to 2.

Most users love Allegorithmic, But in my case it's not about you, it's that we don't trust Adobe and don't want to be forced to have dealings with them at all on any level, at least that's my feeling.

Had The Foundry not taken Mari and you had done this with  them that would have been awesome IMO.

I will keep using  Substance Suite as I have spent a lot of time using/teaching it and frankly I have too much time  invested in it to abandon it but REALLY not happy to have to deal with Adobe.
BTW I don't use Photoshop either.


Yes most times I have

Hi Jeremie
Yes I have been submitting these as they happen via the automatic crash  widget.
It is still happening constantly and I have no idea why.
It's worrying me as we teach this in our college and once we start the next semester this is going to get annoying, I would like to get this sorted before that happens next month if possible.
I have broken the project down into smaller chunks and cleaned my drives as well as all the other normal stuff to clean the machine but it really seems as though when ever I paint in 4k it just  closes SP with no warning, it does not even hang, it just goes" I'm outta here" and that's  that.
The logs above have not changed, its the same issue on the same machine.
Is there a way to watch the cache that stores the strokes when painting to see what is happening?

Ok so I take it back, I have had nothing but trouble today, as soon as I paint, in this case added a black mask, added a paint layer and painted a mask and it freezes painter and does not recover, its as though its filled the cache and stopped working.
Thinking of going back a version.
I have had about 4 bug submits on the crash over the last 3 weeks and no response yet.
I am using a 6GB Titan Black GTX and have 24 GB mem on an 8 core I7 processor.
never had trouble until 2018 version.

I have even had to resort to import parts of character to texture instead of the whole thing which I don't like.

Any ideas?

Ok, I am a little embarrassed but figured if it saves someone else the trouble I will tell you what it was.
My HDD had only 2GB left on it (I thought  it was enough) and as soon as I cleared some more room it was fixed, obviously Substance Painter needs a fair bit of space to cache strokes when painting.
If I am wrong please tell me but making more room on HDD fixed it.

I have been using substance for a couple of years now  and had no issues like the ones happening now in 2018.1
The character scene I am working on is big, it's 9 Udims (to be combined later, due to cage problems it was easier to break out the Udims) and very heavy on materials, most are set to 2k.

Issue 1

Random crashes
When ever I try to paint with a brush after about 3 seconds of a continuous stroke it just crashes, this happens every time.

I have upped my Vram to 18GB and also tried multiple Nvidia drivers for my Titan Black GPU.

Issue 2
Was my stupid fault....

i have also reinstalled SP as well
Attached are the log and dxdiag as well as screenshots of the problem.
I can share the project .spp, but only to Allegorithmic and it would have to be privately as it is a professional project and it's 5.7GB
