New User / Learning: Editorcrashing on startup - Mac OS Catalina 10.15.5

Hi there,

Im a total newbie and trying to lean the unreal editor as I work in set design for film / tv and was told I should learn this program. Any how, I have submitted multiple crash reports.Virtaully every time I attempt to creat e new project the launcher crashes. Any ideas?

iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019)
3.7 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5
Radeon Pro 580X 8 GB
64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4

I just went through a similar thing, it was complaining about the shaders can only use CPU and Unreal kept crashing after a short period of time. It could be that you need to give permission to the Terminal app in the security settings (something to do with XCode surprisingly). Then I updated to the latest version of Catalina and it works now. (I am using Unreal ver 25.1)
