View Full Version : Lock-up on abort render

Has anyone found a solution for this? Just started happening, every render I abort locks up layout.

LW9? Even with the perspective camera?

Strange, never had problems with lockup on abort, but had loads of crashes when the renders complete and I'd click 'Continue'. Got into the habit of always clicking abort after a test render. I think the problem in my case was low virtual memory, since I've cleared up a couple of gig everything's been fine. Don't know why 'Continue' should have crashed layout when 'Abort' didn't, but there you go.

Could your problem also be a memory/virtual memory issue?

Hmm, I don't know. Its a brand new machine with a vitually empty harddisk and 2gb of memory... But there could be a hardware thing of course. I ran memtest86 for about an hour or so, that seemed fine, and it is stable otherwise. I'll run it again tonight for a few hours.

It's a brand new E6600 with a 975X chipset though. Maybe a bit too cutting edge to be entirely stable? I don't know.

I've had this problem alot of times, but never with the new perspective camera in 9, if I use the classic one it happens from time to time.
