View Full Version : LW9 render crashes

12-03-2006, 08:20 AM
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Any time I render out an image sequence (LWTGAs) or an animation (QTmov)
my entire system crashes. The whole thing powers off. The scenes are not very complex. No radiosity and medium AA. I'm not asking my machine to do too much. My computer is 9 months old. It is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core 4400+ 2.21 GHz, 1 GB of ram, 2 400 GB hard drives in RAID, and a ATI FireGL v5000 card. It is running on Windows XP Pro. Even my 7 year-old machine running LW6.5 would render this stuff out. I have re-installed LW9 many times. Is there a problem with my hardware configuration? Is my copy of LW bad? HELP!! I can't render anything and I can't get anything done.

Sounds awful! It sounds more like system than Lightwave trouble, so I don't have any guesses, but I'm sure if you post this on a more popular forum like General discussion Community or PC you'll get some help. I'm sure there's some techie person that knows the answer -
