creating prefab from interactive cloth in the scene crashes the editor



1) I created an object with interactive cloth and a cloth renderer.
I setup the cloth colliders and see it behave like cloth when I play, but if I drag this little item to the prefabs folder, unity will crash.

2) How can we reproduce it using the example you attached
-open attached project
-open scene
-drag Flags object from scene hierarchy into prefab folder in the project explorer
-NOTICE editor crashes

    Don't add ClothRenderer in editor, but rather create it at runtime. Without ClothRenderer component, you can work with prefabs. Presence of InteractiveCloth with assigned mesh is safe, according to my observations.

    ClothRenderer cr = gameObject.AddComponent<ClothRenderer>();
    cr.material = GetComponent<MeshRenderer>().material;
    GetComponent<MeshRenderer>().enabled = false;

    Nice one, fix still not released, can we stretch it to full year? Keep up the good work guys!

    ARENMOOK's workaround does work fine. Thanks for that!

    You just never must apply the changes when the cloth is acutally activated. Creating the prefab with the inactive cloth GO does actually save the inactive GO in the prefab, then you activate it at runtime via a little script. Or manually for testing (without updating the prefab). Still a bummer, though.

    4.3.4f1 and still not fixed! A shame!

    Thanks ARENMOOK for the workaround, however, Unity still does crash when reactivating the cloth and trying to apply the changes.

    Any ideas on how to create a prefab with cloth?

    same here, and the workaround from ARENMOOK works good.

    Work-around: disable the game object that has the interactive cloth, then create the prefab / apply the changes. Seems to work when it's disabled.

    100% reproduce-able in my case. Prefab works fine without the cloth. Attach interactive cloth, hit Apply -- crash!
