I’m trying to render an animation with 80 frames. Every time, it renders about 20 frames and then just completely freezes. I rendered the animation for 12 hours yesterday and only 20 frames were done.
Now, for the specifics. I’m using the Blender Internal renderer in Blender 2.71. My project is 1800 by 1200 pixels. I’m working on a Late 2008 Macbook Pro with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core Duo Processor and 4 GB of RAM. My graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB.
As you can probably guess by looking at my graphics card, switching over to Cycles is out of the question. I tried rendering to both Quicktime and AVI formats, but I got the same problem with both. What’s going on?
