I'm getting this problem now, I was playing with a scene, added a bunch of trees, did a render plus channels, saved the project, closed SU2015.. did manly duties ie feed the tribe then loaded the scene and its 20mins later and still loading cpu is at 15% memory for SU is creeping up but still under 2gb of 8gb.. its showing 50% free
the scene itself is only 24meg and I just used boxes, Thea took around 15secs to build when I did the earlier render and wasn't stretched at all..

still busy

When I get this issue, I kill SU manually, relaunch it , in prefs unable skatter, relaunch SU, open the file, and then re-enable skatter, regenerate the skatters.

I have a bug in 1.0.3 that make Skatter 10 times slower in some cases, maybe that's what you're seeing.
A new build will be released in the next few days.

Thanks optimaforever, I just went back to the backup version without the Skatter, I wasn't really finished with the scene, I was just showing someone how to do a position channel pass and depth for post pro mist/fog.. but if I have it happen again I'll do as you say :)

The tree's were Skatter content I made, I think the mod.thea is around 15meg, the simple skp is basically the same as sKatter ones from the library, the skp tree is a scary 120 meg but I didn't use that, I only made it trying different ways to get a XFrog tree into SU
If I do it again I'll take a note of the amount of instances Thea has so you get some idea how much was in the scene, but I plan to place the trees better so its a bit more economical so I can do the grass with out killing the project

I think i noticed the same behavior. After a few hours without activity with Skatter in preview mode i got this:


After a restart of sketchup the memory usage was set back to ~250 MB and then i started a new skatter preview and it began counting up again (~7,5 GB after 3 hours)

So the RAM usage if going up slowly over several hours?

Yes. In increments of maybe 40-80 KB every second. It also happens when i only use "Edit skatter group" on an old skatter object. Nothing more to do, only open the scatter dialog.

Ok thanks, I'll investigate.

You are on Windows7? Sketchup 2016?

I know, but it doesn't fix the problem.



Off Topic @Rich
IMHO the new emoticon set is way worse than the old set.
By the way, why is the emoticon with the dark glasses named "fro"?

We messed up importing a new set.

We plan upgrading forums this year so no real point fixing them until the whole thing gets an overhaul.
