todays crash is one that has actually happened to me several times,

when browsing local media LW crashes. this doesnt happen verr consistently, so i haven't managed to reproduce it on command yet. it might only happen when using the trackpad to scroll, but i'm not 100%sure.

2015 macbook pro running mojave with 8GB ram.

This is a very annoying behavior i experience as well. One reason this can happen is having unsupported media files in on of the folders you scroll through. This shouldnt´t be crashing an entire program, with lightworks unfortunately it does.

Well, freeing a pointer which was not allocated rarely leads to a good end, especially if the applications has moved data to the address beforehand.

i just got another crash, whilst exiting the project to the browser(lobby?)

like the last crash this one also says the same thing in the error message:

Application Specific Information:
abort() called
Lightworks(63653,0x10f7e25c0) malloc: *** error for object 0x600002377e00: pointer being freed was not allocated


osx crash log attached.

I would think, unless you upgrade your main memory to 16 GB, you can repeat this over and over again, but I suspect even then, you'll see it, just not so frequently.

yep i'm sure that having less memory makes memory related bugs happen more often. i could probably get the same effect by having more memory and bigger projects.

if i leave the computer switched off it'll crash less too.

unfortunately this horrible little laptop has it ram soldered onto the motherboard,
i'd never have bought a mac if i didn't have to develop software for apple devices.
