I have a strange problem that I don't understand, maybe someone can help me?
I run Illustrator CS5 on a win7 64bits / i7 / 8 Go RAM / ATI Radeon HD 5470 and each time I want to apply a simple 3D effect (3D rotation), AI is freezing during the rendering... The aim is to do a disco ball by revolution of a half circle with a map art for the disco ball faces. Everything is OK until I try to change the disco ball perspective axis! Illustrator is not responding anymore and win7 ask me for closing the program.
I have already try different issues without success:
- change the scratch disk
- improve the performance : closing all running applications, simplify win7 display settings (disable aero,...), clean/defrag the disk, the register and memory, define a swap up to 24 Go
- ramdisk dedicated to readyboost, scratch disk of AI and swap
It usually freezes after 50% progression, with the optimized performance it goes sometimes until 90%...
Thank you in advance!
You simply have too many blend steps and it's running out of memory. Expand the "More" section to control that.
