View Full Version : maya 2010 occlusion render in mental ray crashes

11-29-2009, 08:10 PM
so i am following this tutorial here (http://www.jonathanrnelson.com/home.htm) exactly from top to bottom to create an occlusion render in maya 2010 while rendering with mental ray using the render>render view option...my scene is 10.8mb in size(maya binary) & polycount is 507836. i mostly try to render at 1024 x 1024 resolution which it barely manages..it starts really slow, takes a long time...sometimes the renderer window remains all black & maya freezes..so i have to manually bring up the task manager to end it...sometimes it just crashes..if i try any resolution higher than a 1K square it crashes..sometimes the rendering starts fine but midway the rendering window turns all black & freezes so i have to close maya...my system specs are- 1x 1gb ddr2 800mhz ram, 1x 2gb ddr2 800mhz ram(total 3gb), intel core2quad q9300 @2.5ghz, ATI HD4850 512mb GDDR3 & windows xp pro sp3 32bit....i have a 320gb HDD with atleast a 100gb of free space...so what could be the problem?
