    how to turn off multi threading

    hello;

    I am getting a multithreading error when I attempt to render where on of my surfaces has a surface baker on it;

    PROBLEM: I cannot figure out how to turn multithreading off;

    any thoughts please;


    thanks;

    Change the number of threads in the render globals to 1.

    Lightwolf, thanks for your time;

    I had looked through the Render Globals dialog box, but I was looking for a '2' ( as that is the value in my Render Status window ) instead of the word 'multithread' ... it was set to 'automatic' ;

    I guess that since my pc is a dual core that LW automatically declared 2 threads????

    thanks,
    Shannon
