Ray Maker not rendering fully

Recommended Posts

I'm currently working with VW 8.5 on an old 6100 Mac with OS 9. Lately, when the files are fairly complex (lights/transparencies/textures), the raymaker renders only half of the page and then stops, leaving me with that nice checkered pattern over most of my projects. QD works fine, but I need the textures and transparencies. Anyone else have this problem?

Sounds like a classic insufficient RAM problem. Either you have too little assigned to VW, or too much (thus taking up too much of the overall RAM heap). The easiest way to solve this is to add RAM, but you might try tinkering with the memory allocation to see if you can find the sweet spot that allows the rendering.
