I currently have two computers with XSI running on each. A new computer and an older one; and both have the same XSI
.scn files on both.
When I render on the older computer, the scenes render just fine.
However when I render on the new computer, the same exact scenes will at
some point, stop rendering, hang and become non-responsive, forcing me to
ctrl+alt+delete out of the program. Everytime. I've been trying to solve this problem since March or April.
New Computer Specs:
Intel Core 2 X6800 @2.93Ghz, 3.29Ghz
2 Gig RAM
Geforce 8800GTX Video Card
Windows XP Professional
Recently I discovered that it only seems to be hanging/crashing with scenes where there's SKELETAL ANIMATION. For example, I am currently trying to render a scene with a single animated character in it...
. The scene keeps crashing/hanging after rendering a frame or two.
. I delete the animation from all controls/bones...
. It renders without crashing.
Again I'll state, just to keep things clear...
. This crashing/hanging problem only happens on my new computer. All of the same scenes render without a problem on my old computer.
. The only scenes that I've EVER had render successfully on this machine had NO skeletal animation. That's the only thing I can see that was different about them. But why would that be a cause for crashing? Could it be a video card problem?
Has anyone out there experienced a similar problem? I'm really desperate to get this problem fixed as it's affecting my job performance. I'd really appreciate any help anyone would be willing to offer!
