View Full Version : LW crashing while rendering.

I have a scene in 9.2 and it rendered fine up until frame 171, then it crashed. But frames after 171 rendered. I couldn't even render 171 alone. I made some minor changes to the scene and 171-175 rendered fine, crashed on 177. I was able to render 177 through F9 and saved it, but then it would crash on 178.

It's a pretty simple scene. Only effects are 3 particle emitters with hypervoxels but nothing too complex. The only other thing odd is I have a ground plane which uses shadow density as it's alpha.

Anyone know why most frames would work but a couple (seemingly random) frames won't?

You might want to watch your ram usage while it's rendering. If it's close to the limit, some frames may render while others will be just over the edge and cause a crash. HV can take a ton of ram.
