Open Gl Mode Crashing

Recommended Posts

This is something I have found as a general annoyance. I may not be entirely correct on this, but as far as I can tell open GL doesn't like lots of lights. The more light sources the slower it goes and often crases. Which makes it in my mind a bad combo if you ever try to do renderings with spotlight.

I'm not sure about Macs, but a common cause of OpenGL crashes in Windows is out of date video drivers.

Can you post the file?

What happens if you copy the element that causes the problem and paste it into a new file?

Does it still crash?

I've seen OpenGL craches caused by problems with just a piece of geometry. Other then contacting and sending the file to technical support, your best solution is to try eliminating things from the drawing and see what prevents it from crashing when you render.
