I’m trying to render out one frame for a static shot, and if I use even the basic settings for Yafray, the whole thing crashes while loading some of the objects. I have so far attempted this on a 2.4ghz PC/WIN XP/1GBRAM AND a G5/Panther/2GB Ram with similar results.
The scene consists of two vehichles, hilly landside, tree, etc…
I watched in the PC’s DOS window and the Mac’s CONSOLE to see if it happens at a specific point, but so far it doesn’t crash on any specific object, just after it has loaded a handful of them. In Windows, I get a runtime error, and in Panther it informs me that the application crashed (cant recall at the moment what it said in the CONSOLE).
I also tried converting all of the subsurfs over to actual meshes, which got me a lot further (as in the number of objects it would load) but it still crashes while during the LOADER segment of the render (plus making the blend file over 300 megs in the process).
I have no problem rendering using Yafray on simpler scenes and objects using the same settings, just this particular scene is making it choke.
Any suggestions? Anything to look out for?
