I am trying to render a scene in LW8.2 with alot of polys and I always become the message "not enough memory for center arrays" and it won't start to render. The PC is an AMD Athlon 3500+ with 2GB Ram. When I render the same scene on my notebook P4 with 512MB Ram LW 8.0 then it renders.

What could be the problem? I really need some help.

Best regards.

Maybe you have a virus. I don't know, you could have something running in the background eating your system resources or you could have RAM going bad.

At least you know is not LW and take it out of the equation.

Thanks for the answer.
No there is no virus and no there is nothing eating up memory in the background.
I think it's a problem of LW 8.2 because with LW 8.0 there is no problem with this object.

... and best of all.. when the warning appears there is still 192Mb. of physical free Ram.

Any sugestion more than try to render with 8.0 ??

No I didn't fix it. I really don't know where's the problem.
I also have plenty of free memory. And on the notebook with only 512MB Ram there is no problem to render this scene. But on the notebook there is LW 8.0 and on the workstation there is LW8.2.

Posted in a spanish LW list, they gave me a solution that worked !!

Just as simple than increase the number of layers and remake new parts of the objects.

So with only 1 layer it doesn't render... now having 4 layers it's ok and render fine.
