Big scene - Sketchup crashing all the time

Postby ark » Mon Mar 12, 2018 2:24 pm

Hi,

Lately I've begun using Sketchup for rendering (using Thea plugin for Sketchup), and as the scene gets bigger sketchup is struggling to handle it.

Where is the bottleneck...? My PC is brand new with a strong GPU, CPU and a 32Gb ram!

:shock:

Specifics? What kind of graphics card? What operating system? Windows 10?

Are you using SU8 as your profile indicates? In SketchUp's Preferences>OpenGL, do you have Hardware Acceleration enabled or disabled? How big is the SketchUp file? Have you tried purging unused?

How heavy (MB) is your scene?
I have successfully worked with SketchUp files that was about 650 MB.
Grouping lose geometry and using layers to show/hide stuff while working is a good practise.
If the SketchUp file is somehow acting weird it could work to start a new SketchUp file and copy every thing over to it.

Well the scene is only 244 MB, so it shouldn't be to bad...

I've attached some sunset renders (no post processing yet!) so you can see the scene.

Can you screen capture the SU model? me thinks the vegetation may be the issue.

Are you using Skatter for the grass and trees? If so, have you checked "Render only" to keep the SU file lighter.

For the vegetation I used Skatter and Thea instances. Only a couple of plants on the terrace are full models.

If you are using very large textures these might help:
