hi everyone.

if i'm building a computer, i need to choose how much ram i need or think i'll use. how much is overkill? how can i tell how much a scene uses? and finally, what's the most you've ever used or needed on lw alone?

its dependant on what u got in ur scene, lighting, models, complexity etc.

Ive killed lw before since I wasnt using any optimisations so thats my fault!

Rendering the scene requires more ram i beleive if u increase the res, theres a table out there showing this.

Im not sure how much ram u will bw using but i have a gig of ddr400, if your new to this kind of thing i think anything over 512mb will suffice.

Everyone - correct me if im wrong!!! :)
