Its a laptop when from when 512mb was actually quite good (for a laptop, and not to shabby for a cheaper desktop)
Thanks for all your help guys
I tried what you said Jay and when I hit calculate I still got the same error message but the render worked
When I start to do bigger scenes, with this in it, alien ships, a landscape etc ill definitely the other methods
I dont know what Id do without you all
:blush:

Yeah that isn't a lot of RAM at all, you're running an OS, running Maya then rendering with Mental Ray, sooner or later something is going to crash.



Also, you should look into command line rendering.
