Why does SideScroller template crash when changing viewport view?

I am having an issue with the Sidescroller template (not the 2d one).

It creates the template fine, but doing anything that involves the viewport, like changing from Perspective to Top view, showing FPS etc, causes the editor to Not Respond, and i have to Force Quit.

Even when opening the Character BP and doing anything in the viewport also crashed the editor.

ThirdPerson template works perfectly tho.

I’ve tried in 4.16 and 4.15, with the same results.

My machine specs:

MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013)

2,3 GHz Intel Core i7

16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB

Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB
