partition size?

Recommended Posts

I'm running VW on a Mac G3/350 OS 8.5.1

I started getting 'low on memory' and 'increase partition size' messages while doing even simple rendering of a two story house (800+K file). Figuring it was a RAM issue (the machine had 64 MB of RAM) I installed 1 gig of RAM and yet I'm still getting the same messages. The only way to render is to quit the file and reload. I can then render for a short while until the messages pop up again.

I've maxed out the memory fields in the Mac OS control panel and even dreated RAM disks on the desktop to no avail.

Any suggestions?

The only suggestion I have is to try lowering your VW allocation. Apparently VW and RW use free ram to render, not allocated ram. So If you allocate all or most of your ram to VW then there is not enough ram to render the image and to run the system.

Good Luck
