4.15.2 crash on Paint tab in Landscape mode
Hi, I'm starting to learn how to use the engine, so I was following the Landscape mode built-in tutorial when the editor crashed.
I started a new empty C++ project with base code and created a new empty level. Then I clicked on the Landscape mode and started the tutorial. Everything worked fine until I switched to the Paint tab and I was supposed to add the Engine Content's Landscape_Material to my landscape. When I tried to add the material to the landscape, the editor crashed.
So I re-launched the editor and tried to do it in another way. I re-opened the empty level I created before and switched to the Landscape mode, then created a new landscape with the default settings in the manage tab and dragged the Landscape_Material to it. It went fine, so I thought the issue was gone, but then I clicked onto the Paint tab and the editor crashed again. I tried both ways a couple times more, but every time I had the same results.
I guess it may be due to my not-so-recent hardware (I'm using an Asus Zenbook with i5-3317U CPU, 6GB RAM and nVidia GT620M with 1GB dedicated GRAM) but I though it could be helpful to report the issue.
I hope this can be fixed, I really want to learn how to use this engine.

So I investigated your crash internally and it looks like you are experiencing one of our top crashes. With the 4.15.2 release we actually rolled out a tool to help us identify and gather insight on the cause of this specific crash. I tested your exact process on my end and did not get the crash to occur unfortunately.
If you’re currently working with a version of 4.15, we’d really appreciate it if you upgraded to 4.15.2 and update your NVIDIA drivers to 381.89 so we can act fast on getting these bugs squashed.
If you can consistently reproduce the crash on our end, please keep sending us the reports so we can continue to gather necessary information to implement a fix.
