View Full Version : Layout Crashing at beginning of Render

10-28-2011, 10:00 AM
Hello Everyone,

I'm having a crazy issue with Lightwave when rendering. I will be working on a scene and it will render just fine, but if I save that scene and reopen it later, when I render it will crash right away or will render the radiosity and then crash. If I delete the object out of the scene it will render fine with nothing in it or if I make the object unseen it will also render fine. Anyone had this experience or have heard about it.

Ok, figured out that if I turn off the raytraced shadows in the scene it will render, but as soon as I turn those back on it crashes right away.

Only time that has happened to me was before I switched to 64bits and I was running out of ram. Loaded the scene on a 64 bit machine with lots of ram and it rendered fine. Hopefully that is the case, ram prices are amazingly low now. I just expanded my memory and bought the same sticks that cost me $200 in may of 2010 for $25.
