    I am using Unity 2019.3.0b1 on a Macbook pro (mid 2015).

    When editor tries to open after importing the assets from an existing project macOS crashes with a kernel panic. After rebooting i am able to open editor but then macOS randomly crashes again when i click on an editor window.

    This is the kernel panic report:

    I tried reinstalling macOS, reimport the project multiple times but with no success.

    I could not reproduce this with another project and the project that crashes on my laptop works just fine on another machine.

    Does anyone know what the problem might be?

    Update:
    I managed to reproduce this crash by creating a new project and replace the ProjectSettings folder with the one from the project that crashed before.

    I attached the unity crash report

    Ok, i think i solved it. My project settings had metal editor support disabled. Enabling this option solved the crashing problem. I reproduced this issue with a freshly created project and just disabled the Metal editor support. I tried on a macbook pro 2018 (with dedicated graphics card) and could not reproduce the issue. This could be an Intel graphics driver related problem.

    OMG, I think I'm having the same issue, except my project is for Magic Leap, which uses WebGL on the Mac during dev. Ouch.

    Don't quite know how you got to into that solution but definitely saved my day as well, thanks!

    Update: Keeps crashing after a few minutes

    I have the same issue with 2019.3.0f6 on a Macbook 12 (2017). OS crashes when I switch between the Scene and Game tabs.
    The same project worked fine on 2019.2 and there are no issues on windows.
    Switching to Metal didn't help.

    Has this already been flagged as a bug?

    Disabling metal support in the editor causes my MacBook (2018, integrated graphics) to freeze & crash on the latest 2019 release (Unity 2019.3.1). Annoyingly, I get a screen tearing issue with metal that doesn't appear to be there with OpenGL, but I can't switch without everything going haywire :(.

    Where do you find the metal support editor setting? I can't find it for the life of me. Thanks.

    Open ProjectSettings/ProjectSettings.asset with text editor, find metalEditorSupport and set to 1.
    metalEditorSupport: 1

    I've had 15 crashes in the past days and enabling metal seems to workaround for now. I reported issue #1225380

    Thank you for the report! We're looking into it.

    Could you please submit a bug report for the crashes you're experiencing? Sounds like separate issues.

    This happens with the latest build of Unity too. Unity crashes constantly and sometimes makes the OS to crash. I disabled the editor metal support because I'm getting rendering artifacts in the Editor making it unusable (attaching a screenshot) and the only solution is to restart it. I guess the better option is to enable metal and restart the editor from time to time instead of using OpenGL and being unable to start unity at all or even making my computer to crash ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Same issue here on 2019.30b6. Enabling metal support is the only way to stop a kernel panic when previewing on my 2018 13" Intel Iris 655 GPU Macbook

    This is still happening and relevant in 2019.3.6f1. I tried to turn metal editor support on by editing the settings file but it keeps crashing with a different error now:

    This issue persists on 2019.3.7f1. Again this is on a (2014) Macbook Pro with Intel Iris Graphics.
    Fiddling with Metal support makes no difference. However, reimporting all assets (Assets folder -> right click -> Reimport All) stops it happening. I think you probably need to reimport every time you make changes to the Build Settings or restart Unity.

    Same issue here. I have metal support enabled. When Unity is running, my system occasionally (every few days) becomes un-responsive and eventually reboots itself. Console.app shows a WindowServer crash log with these details:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. Termination Reason:    WATCHDOG, [0x1] monitoring timed out for service
    2. Termination Details:   WATCHDOG, checkin with service: WindowServer returned not alive with context:
    3. is_alive_func returned unhealthy : WindowServer initialization not complete (post IOKitWaitQuiet)
    4. 80 seconds since last successful checkin, 1325 total successsful checkins since wake, 39 seconds since last crashed by watchdogd,  (1 induced crashes)
    5.  
    I'm on a 2019 MacBook Pro with 32 GB of memory and a discrete GPU.

    Same here. I have opened and upgraded a project in which metalEditorSupport is set to 0. It crashes my MacBook Pro (13-inch 2020 2 thunderbolt ports) running macOS 10.15.5 with Unity version 2019.3.15f1 and turns off the computer.

    Setting metalEditorSupport to 1 in ProjectSettings/ProjectSettings.asset with text editor before opening solved the problem.

    This error still happens in 2019.4.0 LTS! Same panic crash as the OP.

    Changing to metalEditorSupport to 1 seems to fix it. i will report back if it continues.

    When I filed a bug report regarding this issue they replied the following:

    "Thanks for getting in touch, after looking at the crashlog that you've attached, we've identified the issue as a duplicate of the following issue: https://issuetracker.unity3d.com/product/unity/issues/guid/1215404/

    This issue should be caused by the OpenGL graphics API, therefore you should be able to work around it by forcing the Editor to use Metal. You can do that by launching the Editor with the following command line argument: -force-metal

    You can learn more about command line arguments here:
    https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/CommandLineArguments.html"

    On macOS, type the following into the Terminal to launch Unity:

    /Applications/Unity/Unity.app/Contents/MacOS/Unity -force-metal

    I have not tested this. And I think it is a better solution to just setting metalEditorSupport to 1 in ProjectSettings/ProjectSettings.asset with text editor before opening.

    UP -> 2020
    TY, you save me. Crash after Crash sometime immediately and sometime 1/2 hours after launch unity :). A package have changed my default setting and after crash after crash.
    Same issue Unity 2014.4.1f1 and 2019.3.14f1 ( project stetting -> player -> metal editor).

    TY All.

    Enabling metaleditorsupport in the player settings seem to fix the problem

    Thank you to all who contributed to this thread. Opening the ProjectSettings.asset file and editing metaleditorsupport: 1 solved it for me on my:
    MBP 13 Early 2015 running MacOS 10.15.5 (this model has Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB)

    Thanks man, I was having this issue with Unity 2019.4.1 (LTS).

    In my case, the option to enable Metal compatibility wasn't available in a particular project (ported from an older version of Unity) and using the terminal command would just open Unity Hub. This is how I added the -force-metal flag:
    • open Unity Hub
    • click the 3 dots to the right of the project you want to add the flag to
    • click Advanced Project Settings
    • add the flag -force-metal and click done
    • your project will now open Unity in "Metal" mode

    So it seems like neither metalEditorSupport: 1 option nor the -force-metal launch command helps MacBook Air 2012 to open Unity 2019.4.0f1 LTS project. Not even empty ones.

    My question is 2-fold:

    - How should I report this crash bug, when the Unity Editor itself is not launching?

    - Is a Metal API related crash bug currently known, so far all solutions are pointing to OpenGL issues?

    the file ProjectSettings/ProjectSettings.asset is a binary file. How can I open and modify it?
    which text editor did you use?

    Can confirm. Unity 2019.4.4 and 2019.4.8 and 2020.1 crash with Macbook Pro 2015 and on board graphics.
    Usually when I press play and then resize the Editor.
    Once it also crashed when importing.

    Switching to metal fixes it.
    Would be great if Unity could enable metal by default in those cases.
