In the most recent course (for me) in Blender, I was doing an animation with Orc and Another fire character, so for example I would like to know if this whole set, or something here that I added could be the cause of the crash:
the text is long but if anyone can help/explain how it could be done thanks in advance… ; )
Environment - Added snow texture, then removed it and left with smooth shader and simple white texture on mountains. I added rock texture to some rocks, added several trees with botaniq addon (some free models), added smoke to some trees and “snow” object particles starting in the final animation part.
I also added particles that came out when the orc punched the opponent, and also particles on the object simulating simple “soot” (coming out of one of the directions of the trees)
Added a single wind to move the particles forward towards the fire character’s path to the orc
In some moments some VDB effects that I found free on fire.
In spite of that, the environment models are lowpoly.
Characters: Both I made highpoly and then I used their lowpoly models with highpoly texture bake, however for the example in the fire character I added fire particles to emulate the fire coming out of the character at times like when confronting or releasing some “magic” from fire on the orc.
So there was a 2GB file even after cleaning what is not being used, hence it is not possible to render it out on free sites, most 750MB…
I did a test by disabling many things but even so when I try to render it crashes and the pc is at 100% either CPU or memory,
even if you disable a bunch of stuff. So I was confused about what I could / should see first of all, like what would be heavier for the lightest and go on redoing or modifying it, making it lighter, but without losing some effects…
The Course is very cool, but then I ended up getting lost when adding all this context, thus wanting to add several things.
but I posted in the Blender Show session the images I managed to generate by eevee without crashing.
