hello;

I am getting a multithreading error when I attempt to render where on of my surfaces has a surface baker on it;

PROBLEM: I cannot figure out how to turn multithreading off;

any thoughts please;


thanks;

Change the number of threads in the render globals to 1.

Lightwolf, thanks for your time;

I had looked through the Render Globals dialog box, but I was looking for a '2' ( as that is the value in my Render Status window ) instead of the word 'multithread' ... it was set to 'automatic' ;

I guess that since my pc is a dual core that LW automatically declared 2 threads????

thanks,
Shannon

Yup, exactly.

...and you're welcome :)
