I am going to take the truck I made a while back and composite it into a photo my buddy took while in Iraq.

Maya started acting lame on me and keeps crashing, here is where I was at though. I darkened up the image is that ok? or should I have made it fit the original?

thats an antenna from a vehicle or the vehicle its self depening on what your talking about, I may move the model to the right and have it sitting in the puddle instead of where its at now.

So I changed the truck to sit in the water but I cant get Maya to render, it keeps crashing. I got rid of the HDR and just made a sphere for my photo to sit on but it still continues to crash. Any ideas?

try exporting the model froom the scene and making a new one...import. Delete prefs and start new scene...then save. I clear all temp history in WinXP.....failing that reboot the laptop...sometimes option 1 works so I dont have to do the rest.

Hope it sorts out

cheers bullet
