Prorender crashing when selected

Post by tiCreativeMedia » Wed Oct 23, 2019 7:43 pm


I'm looking to move back from Maya to C4D. I just tried using Prorender by selecting it. As soon as I did that, C4D crashed.

Is this due to the trial version? Maybe a hardware limitation? I have a 2013 MacBook pro with an NVIDIA card in it, and also need this to run on a 2010 Mac Pro desktop

Hi Dave, thank and welcome aboard. I think your macbook is too much old for handle such as rendering engine. Pro Render use ATI card instead of Nvidia cards so you are fully incompatible with it.
Pro render is a GPU rendering engine so you must have with you a specific graphic card such as ATI Fire or Radeon Pro on some mac books.
I think you need to move on a CPU rendering engine instead of GPU rendering engine. If you want to move on a CPU rendering engine for your macbook or mac pro desktop try Corona Renderer :)
