Blenchmark not working in Blender 2.78

Hi everyone,
Several blender-heads reported to me that the add-on isn't working with Blender 2.78. I'm currently looking into it. I'm trying to narrow it down and making some progress, but it is a though one. I don't get any python errors. Just the error: Segmentation fault (core dumped). I'm going to figure it out, but it will take some time. Please be patient. If you have any suggestions where to fix this, please let me know!

After some digging I thought is was a bug in Blender itself. I reported it as such and I just got confirmation about it. You can follow the progress here:

Thank you all in advance.
Have fun with Blender!


Future plans

The blenchmark addon and really needs an update. But I simply don't have any time to do anything about it. We all have plans and ideas, but sometimes life intervenes. The last 8 months have been tough due to health issues in the family.

Things that are needed:

  • A new (heavier) render scene;
  • A system to filter results that are way off the average;
  • Better graphs, so result between OS's, blender versions and number of cards are way clearer.

For now, be careful when comparing cards. Sometimes average times aren't a good representation of reality. Although I have built some protection in the addon, sometimes render times are submitted which are not right. And these submissions can have influence on the average times of cards. So check the individual submissions to see if the average score is reliable.
