Windows IDE is fine for us.

EDIT: Scott and I just confirmed Windows is still fine using 472 - we were able to repeatedly generate images WAY more times than we can on macOS and have not reproduced any crash.

EDIT: Just reproduced on Mojave, using the two images from above but when they are stored in 4Dan (I tried those images on Windows first). ui.log added now.

Scott and I have now reproduced a few times on Mojave and Catalina - the issue is intermittent. Just keep clicking Generate Images each time it has succeeded, and you will get the crash fairly soon.

Tested on Catalina (dan verified on Mojave)
1. Create / open a project
2. Open Generate Project images tool (tools > Generate Project Images)
3. Click Generate
4. If crash does not occur on first attempt, just click generate again (without closing dialog)

we were getting a crash consistently under 5 attempts

Scott actually verified yesterday - perhaps not quite a 100% fix, or perhaps it relies on stale cache data in order to repro, as we still got a crash the first time we tried to verify, but thereafter two Macs went for around 50 attempts without another repro, so at the very least FAR better than before.
