View Full Version : Lightwave 9.3 Render Crash

We are getting random crashes on our Intel Xeon Dual Quad Systems doing Gi Frames in LW 9.3. Help ??

Can you describe the crashes? Does the system lock up, or does Layout simply exit, so you get an error message, etc? I ask because I have similar issues - every now and again LW renders will lock up my system entirely. I thought I had tracked it down earlier to a faulty motherboard, so I swapped that. However, it didn't completely fix the issue and I have serious issues attempting to render a mid- to high- complexity animation. Sound familiar or totally off your experience?

LW9.3 32bit
Windows XP 32bit
Athlon 4600+ 64 X2 Dual Core

we get it in 64 bit.
A little black dos box appears on the taskbar and sais someting about intel. So dont think its the same thing but just check for the dos box.

OK - doesn't sound like the same issue, unfortunately. Just stabbing wildly in the dark, maybe a plug-in issue? Unfortunately, not being on a 64-bit os, I got nothing for ya', sorry. Good luck with it!
