Can't open example compositions

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. Open Vuo Editor
  2. Click File, Open Composition
  3. Browse to downloads, DOUBLE-click vuo-0.5.0-composition-examples folder to enter it to select composition. Make sure “columns” view is enabled in finder, not list. (crash only happens in column view)
  4. Poof. Vuo editor crashes with “quit unexpectedly”.
  5. Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
    Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x00000000000000e8

How did the result differ from what you expected?

I expected to open a composition…

When did you first notice this bug?

Happens every time. I can’t open any composition.

Have you found a workaround?

yes. This only happens if the Finder view is set to “columns” and the example folder is double clicked (instead of clicking once to just show the files inside it. If you use “list” view in Finder, you can actually drill into the examples folder and open compositions fine. The bug seems to only happen when double clicking your folder and only in the “columns” finder view.

@synnack, could you please attach the crash logs and console messages to your bug report?

Sure. I have attached all the requested logs. Any ideas?

Thanks, @synnack. With your updated instructions I was able to reproduce the crash. We’re working on it.
