Annimation Crashing

Recommended Posts

Ok I give up... I've got a file that keeps crashing on me as I render the annimation.

Does anybody have a clue as to why a file might crash? It always seems to crash at around 47 frames. Here's the rub. I sent it off to VW and they were able to get it to output a short version of what I wanted.

I've built a test file from a bank page to eliminate any corruptions that might be in the file that started all this, with no luck.

I'm running XP- VW 10.1 with 1 gig ram and a 2.8 chip along with a Nvidia Gforce 64MB graphics card(with updated drivers) I've removed the XP service pack this morning and it just crashed again.

Before all this started I was having (and still am having) difficulty starting VW sometimes... it comes up with an error message that then wants to send a report to Microsoft. After I get this message I RESTORE to a differnet point and try agian.. it seems to be kind of random as to which restore point allows VW to start. I recentlly replaced the hard drive and reinstalled VW.

I'm really stuck on this one. HELP PLEASE!

One more troubleshooting thing to try is to repair XP. In my experience sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't help maybe a clean install is needed.

Graphics drivers can be tricky to update. It can leave remnants of older drivers that cause problems. Do a search on a application called Driver Cleaner (free) and follow the instructions.

Here is a site that has pretty good instructions on doing a repair on XP. Backup, Backup, and Backup before you do this. Warning #1 seems to go too far in prepairing, I've never had a problem after a dozen or so repairs and I haven't done any of the prep they mention. (backup before you do it though).
