I am using VW 2011 Designer and when I run anything that is moderately complex, the render drags and drags.

my machine:

MacBook Pro i7

2.3 GhZ Quad Core Processor


AMD Radeon HD 6750M Graphics Display

my render:

a stage

a room

(3) projection surfaces



a few textures (carpet, ceiling tiles etc.)

Rendering w/ Final Quality Renderworks with a Hidden Line Sketch render in the foreground.

I have eliminated all elements that contain too many polygons and vertices and tried to simplify all other elements. All classes the need not be renders have been switched off.

I have menu meters installed and I watch all of processors go to 100% and it gets about 30% through the render and gets hung.

I'm scratching my head as to why my fast machine would get hung on a render that doesn't have that many elements in them. I plan to put a lot more in there and it worries me that it cannot handle it at this stage.

Does anyone have any ideas/tips as to why a render would be dragging on a fast machine? ...and yes - it's the only application running!

Often it can be a corrupted object. Try custom renderworks with lower settings and work your way up. Final quality is overkill.

It's almost always a corrupt object. Multiple extrudes, sweeps, or mesh objects are usually the culprits.
