Ram Requirements for rendering
I searched the forums and DAZ site trying to find an answer, but could not find an answer.
I recently downloaded DAZ Studio 4.5 and have been experimenting around with it. My computer is less than ideal. It is a old 32 bit Windows XP machine with 2 gb of RAM.
I have been experimenting around creating some simple images, experimenting with lighting and rendering options. The 3Delight software rending option produces nice results with nice lighting and shadows. Unfortunately if I try to render a simple image like the one attached much bigger than 600x463 it crashes. Sometimes it gives resource errors, sometime it crashes without an error.
I assume this is because the software rendering requires more RAM than available on my computer. I need a 64 bit Windows 7 machine with a lot of RAM. Is this probably the problem?
How much RAM do you need to render image using the 3Delight software rendering at 1024x768 up to say 1600 x 1200? Is 8 gb enough? 16 gb? 32 gb? How much RAM can DAZ Studio make use in the windows 64 bit version.
