Problem with rendering RED
on Nov 17, 2009 at 10:39:22 am

I'm trying to render some RED material, but I get the old "unable to allocate space for a 3996 x 4063 image buffer"

The thing is that when I bought my i7 920 processor and 12gbs of RAM, i though I wouldn't have this problem any more. I have the multiprocessing turned on, with the following settings:

RAM to leave for other applications: 1.85GB

Minimum allocation per CPU 0,5
the slidebar in the middle
CPUs to leave for other applocations: 0

The disk cache is set to 24000mb. (in a folder on the same disk, I only have one at the moment).

Isn't my computer good enough for this? I know 3996 x 4063 is a bit larger than 4K, but thats because I have some stuff in 3D space.

Best regards,
Hannes Paulsson

I have no idea how many cores are in an i7 processor, but I do know that on a Windows machine, AE can easily utilize 3 GB per core. I think you may be utilizing too many cores in AE, or you didn't assign enough RAM to each core in AE, or you simply don't have enough RAM to make a big difference when multiprocessing.
