so the title says it basically. but a quick explanation...
I create a splinter cage from an image, duplicate it several times, combine, delete history and add the splinter cage... and the crash

I just got the DMM 2013 up and running. Back in the 2012 version I could do this with no problemo, but now, sometimes (very often) it creates a a crash in maya and it even corrupts the file before applying the splinters so I have to go back, very back in my versions... starting to be very frustrating and my R&D time is almost over, is this a known problem?

thanks
