Okay, I know the Spec’s for 4.5 say 1Gb min and MORE recommended but 2Gb just bairly loads XP and DS4.5. You have No RAM left to render with. I’m sorry but you need a lower version of DS like DS3 for that system. It will just not work with those specs. Not that I can see.
I just did a render yesterday with no problems. It has to be something I downloaded that’s crashing it. But thanks anyway for the replies .
Jaderail is correct, your problems are memory related. That doesn’t mean you won’t be able to run DS4.5, it only means that you will be very limited in what you can render, in terms of amount of characters & props in your scene, render quality and render size.
Say you just have successfully rendered a scene V4 with some simple clothing and maybe a prop or two. But once you start adding more characters or props (which may use high res textures-anikad) or try to increase the render size, that’s where your hitting the wall and DS4.5 will start crashing. The other thing that can do it, as SteveM17 pointed out are your render settings.
You can try reloading the scene you are having trouble with. Remove all but one of characters and try rendering, if it renders then undo changes and try render with two characters and keep repeating until you find how much you can safely have in your scene until you run out of Ram.
If it crashes trying to render just one character then check your render setting and look at the render size.
Hope this help, I know how frustrating these things can be when you are just starting off, but there is a really good community here who are all to willing to help. Good luck.
