ERROR_CGDataProvider_BufferIsNotBigEnough - Help with core graphics



  • I'm trying to track down a MAC core graphics issue that is making the DAW GUI sluggish.
    Without OpenGL, the DAW will creep to a halt as soon as the plugin is inserted. With OpenGL enabled, the DAW is only slow when the plugin is visible.
    It seems to only effect slightly older MacOS users.
    Time Profiler points to an error in Core graphics while drawing pixels

    ERROR_CGDataProvider_BufferIsNotBigEnough+0x31
    

    Any tips or tricks with this?



  • @dustbro which DAW?



  • @d-healey This specific DAW is protools, but I'm also seeing the issue in Logic.



  • Which OS version?



  • I got the similar report on a new computer too. The system info is:

    • iMac 2019
    • Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-9600K CPU @ 3.70GHz (6 cores, L2-Cache 256 KB, L3-Cache 9 MB)
    • 40 GB DDR4 2667 MHz
    • Graphics: Radeon Pro 580X 8Gb
    • DAW: Ableton

    The GUI so laggy. Also Ableton slows down visually. But same plugin works without any issues in older MacBook Pro.

    I think this is about the settings or drivers of the graphic cards. Something makes that happen....

    I know that for OpenGl, some graphic cards want extra drivers. Especially if the user has onboard graphic card it can be more difficult for him to open the plugin.



  • @d-healey 10.13.6



  • @dustbro Does your test system also have a Radeon GPU?



  • @d-healey Radeon HD 4870



  • @dustbro I think we've found a common link πŸ™‚ @Christoph-Hart Any input?



  • @d-healey @dustbro Can confirm a similar crash on my end. I'm also on Radeon HD 5770. Here's the symbolicated crash log from Cubase:

  • The last NVidia graphics card was used in a mac computer, almost 10 years ago πŸ™‚



  • Most macs have an onboard graphics chip from intel (at least all of my 6 mac systems do). But itβ€˜s possible that there is something going on with ATI cards.



  • @dustbro I've been struggling with this - is your plugin quite visual? I found that FilterDisplays were really slowing things down. I've had to implement OpenGL.

    Oh wait - we had a convo about this on the thread haha!
