Continuing the discussion from Insert image as plane BUG:
I just wanted to add a note that this is still a problem that hasn’t been fixed. Import Images as Planes instantly crashes Blender when I click the button to load the image file. It doesn’t freeze, the program just instantly closes. I had this problem once before and I somehow managed to fix it, but I can’t remember now what I had to do. I feel like it had something to do with changing a line in the add-on code text file, maybe? Anyway, I just installed the (currently) newest Blender Beta for 3.2.0 and I’m having problem again. Please help!
I’m running it on:
ASUS ROG GU502LV (laptop)
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-10875H Processor 2.3 GHz (16M Cache, up to 5.1 GHz, 8 cores)
GPU: NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060
RAM: 16GB DDR4 on board
16GB DDR4 SO-DIMM 3200MHz
UPDATE**: I reset my Preferences to factory settings, then reinstalled my add-ons and the problem went away. I’m not sure why that fixed it but there seems to be some conflict within the preference settings.
