Hello everyone,

I purchased iclone today and was wondering if you can extend the memory usage as I have 16 gig memory and it's saying I'm using 3 gig and would like to use at least 8 gig, can this be done?

Thanks in advance.

Can you post a screen shot showing the usage? iClone will use as much RAM as required to load the opened scene to memory. A small scene will consume a small amount, while a very large scene can bring your system to a stop when available RAM is full.

And are we talking VRAM & RAM? VRAM on the display card is pretty important to iClone!!

Hi,

Yes it's showing 3 gig vram but have 16 ram in my laptop, I'm using a ge62 6qf apache pro msi gaming laptop, graphic card gtx970m, I'm not going to be making high rez scenes, but they will be large as I want to build a static caravan site, well parts of it and make episodes around the static caravan site and the people that live on the park. Just kinda leaning the software right now though. and would like to make full use of what I have memory wise..Can you alter the 3 gig mem usage or does iclone auto use system memory once graphic memory has run out?

For all practical purposes, the GRAPHICS CARD is the primary resource for iClone.  Therefore, it display the "VRAM" (Video card RAM) that is on your graphics card.

iClone will automatically use as much VRAM as is needed for your scene.  If your scene requires more than the 3GB that's on your GPU, it will start "swapping" in and out between your VRAM and your system RAM, which will result in a huge performance slowdown.

But don't panic yet.  There is a lot of animation that can be accomplished with 3GB of VRAM, and there are trick and techniques to help make efficient use of that VRAM.  Just keep an eye on it, and if you start running out, come back here with a more detailed description of your scene and you'll probably get some good advice (before you need to resort to buying a new GPU with more VRAM).

But although I said "Don't panic," do understand 3GB is on the low end.  So don't panic, but do be very mindful of the resources you use.  Avoid unnecessarily hi4-gh-poly models and high-res textures, and remove objects that are not visible to the camera.
