RE: problems with lightyear (sla)

You need to watch your memory utilization, particularly when you are editing supports. Lightyear will continually utilize and lock memory space while you are editing supports, only to free it up again when you completely exit the Lightyear program.

If you monitor your resources, you can exit the program before it crashes. I always save my supports and regions after every change I make. Even with 2 Gigs of memory on my XP computer, there are plenty of times that is not enough to finish editing supports.

I have reported this problem to 3D on several occasions, but I do not know if there is any work being done to rectify the issue.

What error are you getting when the slice aborts?
