I finally managed to get my scene stabilized and not so crash-prone when rendering, though I haven’t added the detail pedestrians yet so I am still concerned about being able to actually render it in the first place. I may have to resort to compositing the pedestrians in (via Lightwave). I will need to do some major color-correcting though to help accent the action happening in this episode… I *might* be able to get a low-cost upgrade of Lightwave sometime this fall, but it is no guarantee; it’d allow me to do any kind of surfacing/coloring many times faster than I can do it now. Think of it like the difference between using a push mower and a ride mower… yeah, that’s how cool Lightwave’s VPR is.
