Subject: Out of Memory error message....
After rendering about 50 to 70 1080x720 images, i get a Out of Memory message. Then i have to close C4D and load the file, (its a big one, that round base with the Disc shaped space ship in it) again to continue render about 50 to 70 more. It a sequence, later to me combined into a video (AVI). What do i do wrong ? in the renderwindow i can see all the images listed on the right side. Does it keep the ready rendered images in memory ?
Hope you guys know the solution
Yes, I believe C4D will keep all rendered images in memory so one idea might be to purge that list as you go. Other than that I would suggest optimizing the scene: diabling HyperNURBS when necessary, reducing geometry, switch from Area to Soft shadows and so on.
I had this problem last year... in my case it turned out to be a bad memory dimm, all the way at the outside of the range (about 15.5 Gb out of 16). It only showed up when I was doing long renders, or if I also had something with a large memory footprint loaded, like After Effects. I was also having a similar problem editing AVCHD footage in Premiere.
I did a google search for free memory scanning tools that helped pinpoint the problem.
I opened my case and found the dimm was loose, which led to the contacts being scratched. Replacing the dimm fixed the problem, and I've (for example) let the box run two days straight rendering, without a problem since.
