Studio/ your computer freezes if you have lots of broken Surface Appearance instances

This bug happens when you load up studio, it seems to be fixing corrupt/broken surface appearance instances. There is an issue though. If your game/place has a lot of them, it will freeze studio and crash your computer, because the compression algorithms seem to eat up CPU. This started happening in the last 24 hours or so for me.

Maybe a queue system for compression of these would help?


Studio keeps freezing over any normal map surfaces for me. I straight up can’t open anything now since I’ve become so used to using normals for everything. I’ve hit a complete roadblock until whenever this gets fixed.

We enabled a change related to generating the compressed textures yesterday at 4:54pm PT. This was just reverted. Let us know if you still see issues.


This fixed my problem. Thank you!
