I am running 2009 on a duel 2.4 ghz box with 3.25 gigs of ram. When rendering a slow move across grass made with the hair/fur modifier, I am getting some "strobing" in the grass. It happens when using both a day and sun light or an omni. I am rendering in scanline.
Although I am able to render the rest of the scene out (including many trees) successfully with MR, trying to do so with the grass results in a Max crash .
