  1. Kevin - I think your reply has hit the nail. I was allocating 150M, not K, sorry about that. But when I had my first problem, I increased my VW memory allocation, which then means I was causing more problems than I was fixing. I rebuilt the desktop and got my VW memory allocation in line with the suggested size and I'm rendering again without problem. THANKS to you and "Ziska". I'll let you know if I draw to an inside straight...
  2. (Don't laugh, but...) I'm running VW on a 300 Mhz G4 laptop 384 MB memory. I do have the memory for VW set at 100K - I don't know what is standard. I do think you're right...this baby do need a new pair of shoes. Thanks for the ideas...haven't rebuilt recently - will start there. I had trashed the preferences once, but that didn't seem to do it.
  3. I'm running Spotlight/Renderworks 9 (I know...update, but...) on Mac OS 9.1 (see previous "I know...") and I've gotten into the problem of when I'm rendering my scene design (and accompanying theatre architecture) either the rendering doesn't complete and I crash or if I get the rendering done, I crash during exporting the image. It seems to happen when I am using gobo projectors... I tried exporting all the elements into a new drawing and that seemed to help, but when I added a couple more gobos, CRASH! I most often get "error of type 2" messages. Is this a memory thing? Can anyone help (besides telling me to upgrade either the hardware or software)? I'm not used to my Mac crashing, and so it's getting on my nerves.
