OK...argh... what the hell just happened???
I was rendering a simple scene with car paint materials. And suddenly screen goes black and computer starts to make some screaming sound like it´s going to die! *peeeeep-pööööööp* and "shut down"
I cant continue this project if I cant even render anymore.
you are overworking your comp, you can't do that - it will end up that your comp will not boot into windows then, if you are using the 3gb switch then you have to turn that off, but that only happened with me when I was rendering something with over 3million polies, it shouldnt be a problem for you, try saving and merging into a new scene, that might work.
it could also be the render settings. When i was rendering my murcielago (who has way to much poly's, something like 5 million) and i put the rendering settings to high it also crashed. When i turned the rendering settings down it worked just fine. So maybe change something on the rendering settings!
