[Ye XueTe] "Graphics:ATI Radeon HD 4670 256 MB"

Your graphics card does not meet the minimum spec for Element 3D (which calls for at least 512 MB of video RAM, preferably more). It may not have enough video RAM to render your scene at full resolution.

Since you can't upgrade the GPU on an iMac, you'd have to replace the computer.

With the system you have, you might have to work in a half-res solid or comp (960x540) and scale it up.

Hi, here's the solution:
1. Turn on the Caps Lock to avoid rendering
2. Add Element 3D to a layer
3. Turn Multi-Sampling down on the output. This will lower the memory requirements
4. To improve Anti-Aliasing (But slow render) turn on Super-Sampling.

Worked for my MBP 15" with Multi-Sampling 1 and Supersampling 2
