Does your texture include displacement mapping? This is a very resource intensive option within a Renderworks texture. Try rendering without it to see if that makes a difference?

Also, presumably this is an image-based texture... check that the image is small in size. It may be that it's far too high resolution and this can cause things to slow down. Try downsampling the image before using it in Vectorworks.

 Hi Tamsin.


Thanks for response. yes it renders when I change the texture. it is a set render from Vectorworks. yew foliage displace. so perhaps it is high res and slowing everything down. weirdly it works ok on straight surfaces just not the domes. not sure how to reduce res or down sample.
