View Full Version : LW crashes on Abort Render

11-07-2007, 11:03 AM
I have a scene that crashes lightwave anytime I hit Abort (esc) whether it's finished rendering the frame or animation or not. The scene is not light weight but not ridiculously huge either. Less than half a million polys, 120 megs of texture memory, a few Simple-Skin nodes, 4 shadow mapped spots, no radiosity. I've checked the geometry several times, no n-sided non-planar polys copied several times and occupying the same space sort-of situations. My PC is a Dell Precision 690, Quad Duo-cores 64bit chips as well as XP64 with 8 gigs of ram. I've even turned off the hub! My eyes, nose and ears are now bleeding from frustration! Any suggestions?

Sorry, no help from me, but I have a crash on exiting Layout after rendering a large file or a long animation.

Might be related, so I'll stick around and see.

Are you rendering with any JPG texture maps? Convert them to png.

if you can, pack up the scene and send it to [email protected] . they'll be happy to get that sort of thing.
