A few month ago, I upgraded our school Macs to iStopMotion 3.8 but did just check whether the app will start and do the main stuff. Now, our teacher for media wanted to work with this app, but it seems to freeze while saving. It’s actually does not freeze, but just doesn’t react while it is saving and die OS believes it hangs.
I found two suspicious log entries:
First one is kind of translation of a variable that is just incredible huge. I did not find much about this, but is it possible, that it is a mix-32/64-bit issue?
Second there are many many wakeups invoked by iStopMotion, about 300 per second is the usual behavior and there were no external devices connected or power saving settings activated.
Nevertheless, with “short” clips (a few seconds) everything seems fine. But with a two minute clip it seems to hang. The log entries appear with both clips.
I just upgraded to the last iStopMotion version. The behavior persists.
