I have a 3ds model produced from a couple of hundred still photos. It's 1.8GB. I'm trying to figure out how to animate & render this in blender, but as soon as I load it Blender steals all 32GB of ram and starts to run like an asthmatic sloth. The mouse pointer moves every 5 or 10 seconds and it's basically useless.
So, for all the blender users out there, are there any specific settings I need to take care of to may go in to draft mode or something like that? I'm a total noob on Blender but would really like to make this work!
