Hi Brian,

Thanks for your input, I'm not really using much effects- The collapsed precomps contain mainly shape layers, text, and 1 or 2 vector artwork layers. Almost all layers in the main comp have an opacity of less than 100%. The 3 point lights have diffused shadow darkness, and all objects cast/accept shadows. All 3d layers in the main are motion blurred. I also have one adjustment layer at the very top using Magic Bullet Looks, but that's about it for effects.

You've mentioned "I have no trouble rendering with many lights on my MBP i7 also with 16 GB, nor on my MBP Core 2 with 8GB of RAM." Do your objects usually cast/accept shadows? I'm starting to think this problem's caused by layers accepting/casting shadows.

I still havent figured out a good render solution, but still doing different render tests.
