I spent a long time designing a scene which involves 5 particle systems (no more than 1000 particles in each), and now I would like to render it.
Unfortunately, I invariably get this error message when I start trying to render it:
This is a problem brought up in this discussion but this page doesn't give solutions I can apply.
There is no doubt for me that Blender is the culprit, since I tried to render the same scene on two different computers and got the same error messages on each one, even when Blender was the only program running.
Is there anything I can do to make sure I can render this scene without crashing the computer? I tried quitting all the other apps besides Blender, and rendering as a PNG instead as EXR, but it doesn't make a difference.
(I would share the file but it is around 50 megs, is there a way to do so?)
