I am baking particles, 10000 of them, following a simple curve guide over 1600 frames. They are halos for the moment, as the shape / object doesn't affect anything.
When I hit bake, it begins to bake some frames, sometimes gets halfway, and then crashes. I am baking with Disk Usage on. I know I am not running out of memory, as I have 16gb, have literally everything else except Blender shut down, and watching both Blender's usage, and on Task Manager, it doesn't exceed a gigabyte.
I do have a fairly intense scene, maybe 1 million tris, but that has not caused issues in any way.
I have tried setting compression on the bake, both Lite and Heavy, but to no avail.
I am not out of Disk Space either, although I do have another bake from the same file in the folder it's baking to.
Any and all help is appreciated!
UPDATE: Here's the link to the file, let me know if it doesn't work.
