Thanks! You know, my Vue almost never crashes. I have maybe 1 crash every week or so, but I use it a lot, normally several hours per day. In my experience, here are some of the most important factors to have few crashes: Your system: 1) have a Windows, not a Mac 2) have a 64 bit system, not 32 3) have plenty of RAM (minimum 6GB) 4) have one of the tested (by e-on) and recommended graphic boards, preferably an Nvidia, not ATI or others 5) have a light antivirus, preferably a free one, not McAfee or Norton (never Norton!) 6) keep your system clean, with CCleaner or TuneUp or one of the many other tools for that 7) keep your system light, avoid use of lots of widgets and other unnecessary stuff
In Vue: 8) have the "Infinite" version of Vue 9) in Vue, activate the small preview window only if and when you need it, don't have it on by default 10) if you have heavy scenes, in Vue's options reduce the number of undos to 2 11) VERY IMPORTANT: in Vue's options, experiment with OpenGL 2.1 (shader 4) and OpenGL (fixed hardware pipeline) - depending on the systems you may have more or less crashes with one or the other
Thanks Giulio. No, I didn't use that. I used an old technique that I used many times in the past: the clouds are set to "dissolve near objects" and I have some big spheres in strategic spots to eliminate clouds where I don't want them. The spheres are hidden from render, of course.
Thanks! I wanted the trees to give a sense of order, to match the theme, but, yes, I think you're right, I exaggerated a bit. So I made little adjustments in two of the trees. Thanks for the constructive crit!
