its awesome and all that, but at high poly scenes blender seems to fail, as soon as i go over a million faces it gets laggy.
the render-process is really fast, except for the part where it says “preparing scecne data” that takes forever. even so, watching the resource manager, i found that using blender NEVER takes up more than 2-3 gigs of RAM, considering i bought 8GB only for the purpose of making highpoly stuff it makes me really bummed. is blender constricted in using RAM?
