Hello together,

is Lightwave 2018 wasting memory? Or is it a bug, because it doesn't free RAM correctly?

When I load a scene in LW Layout with 2 models 76,3 Mb with textures 3.146,3 MB in Size it starts with 7.4 GB memory. But after a few images it runs with complete memory usage of 30 GB and more. Do you have any suggestions to reduce the extensive memory usage that makes the PC extraordinary slow? (please, take a look at the attached images)

Hi,
I have observed similar:
When I have deforming objects and i use motion blur the memory usage rises more and more with every rendered frame, until LW crashes.

Seems like a bug to me.

This happens to me as well, on a Mac. Rendering frames of an animation, eventually LW will run out of application memory and freeze.
