I am using Blender version 2.74 with cycles and I have a scene that I cannot get to render. When I click render it will just stay on the viewport will just show a checkerboard and show no signs of rendering. It seems to be using all of the memory on my computer but barely any of the CPU. This must have something to do with the model because I can easily render other models. I have tried disabling all the particle systems on the one object I am rendering but still nothing will happen.
Here is the link to the .blend if anyone is interested.
If anyone can help that would be very appreciated. Thank you.
