Why do Blender crashes when I try to use multiple 8k textures? Do I need a better PC?

It just force closes without any error messages.

I am using six 8k resolution texture images for the Earth and the moon and few 4k ones for the major details of orbital city.

I think it is just my system since it also happen on 3ds Max.

Hi, not a whole PC but more RAM and a 64 Bit system if you havenĀ“t one already.
One 32 Bit 8k image need 268 MB RAM, 4k need 64 MB RAM + Geometry.


Cheers, mib

So I need more ram. My second os is Linux 64 bit with a blender installed. I will see if it can handle those big images.
