Houdini crash when render with motion blur

Hello ! I have a scene with motion blur enabled and after 23 frames houdini crash, if I disable motion blur he make the render.

If i try to render the frame 23 alone no problems if I restart from frame 23, later he crash, Arnold log record nothing but there is the houdini log

Did you find a solution yet? I have the same crash with the same configuration as yours. Houdini 18.5 on Linux. Same crash code. In my case I don’t know if motion blur is related. It rendered okay, then it started crashing on one of the first few frames in the sequence randomly.

i think autodesk know this problem but they don't have a solution at this time

i've tried on grid market and is the same problem on 5 computers with motion blur, i'm done with arnold i don't renew my license and go to redshift

there is an answer from grid markets support

"Judging from what I'm seeing, this is actually a reasonably common error with Arnold and I'm not finding a cause or a solution. Here is a link to a post on Autodesk about a very similar occurrance. "

Years ago i'm used arnold with C4d before autodesk i dont have any problem now i've always have a problem with Arnold , withblur, licencing, generate tx file when he want or other radom bug.

Arnold is a great render engine but, to have a good help or support it's really hard when you're an indie i can't wait too much for an answer and i need to work and render my project

most of the people here are helped and thak you to all me but Arnold for houdini have a lot of problems and arnold answer is not the best way to be helped

after 3 month of work on this project and cant find a solution for arnold i do my blur in nuke and next project will be another render engine maybe redshift or renderman and renderman is free...

Sorry to hear you're having issues with the motion blur.

Do you have a simple scene we can run to reproduce the problem?
