Hi everyone,

I'd hate to be the bearer of bad news but while viewport 2.0 is significantly improved in Maya 2012, just be aware if you attempt to use DOF (if that camera has it active) and you viewport 2.0, you may not only crash maya, but also the entire computer. I've sent a formal report to Autodesk let's hope it's fixed in SP1.

It appears so, but I will have to test more thoroughly, but I've experienced the problem on ATI 5750, ATI 5770 and nVidia Quadro 1700. Will test the 1800's probably on Monday or Tuesday. I've also just installed hotfix 3 so I'll see if it's been addressed.

I was going to say check the Hotfixes. If it takes down the whole system is a BSOD or CSOD? (Colour Spining Wheel of Death)?

Just a hang, no message or BSOD, becomes unresponsive to task manager or force quit, forces a hard reset.

Looks like you're not alone on this one either:

Regarding Maya 2012 and OS X 10.7

The second point sounds like a dug up reason to make the case not to install. I haven’t had a single kernel panic with Maya and it runs just as smoothly (and unsmoothly - this is Maya after all) as usual. It’s actually more stable thanks to Apple’s GL fixes. The Radeon cards kernel panic with Maya 2012’s Viewport 2 Depth of Field is fixed and Mudbox’s kernel panics with the Quadro 4000 Mac edition are gone

Good link explains a lot, thanks. Labs seem to be fine, it's a mac os x issue.
