High Memory Usage??

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else experiencing formZ having high memory usage on Windows 11 after installing the V-Ray 5.1 update?  formZ is taking as much as 7/8GB RAM with no file loaded for me...

Using Windows 10... and I see the same memory usage of 7 to 8GB RAM.  I have to be honest, I never noticed this before, as I have 64GB RAM and it always seems to be sufficient these days.  

That being said, I just did a test and Rhino and 3dsmax both only use about 1/10 as much RAM with the same VRAY and Twinmotion plugins installed. 700-800mb.  So it definitely looks like we may have a memory problem.  

Did you report it to Support?

Yes, I reported it to them.  The entire Windows operating system fits on an 8GB thumb drive, so I don't think formZ should be loading that many libraries into memory with no files open...  I think something is using memory it shouldn't.

Hi!

I have noticed something similar. From attached pictures you can see it takes 800 Mb when formZ is started, but when I open a 120 Mb unpacked file it takes 12 GB. After a while it has reduced to 5 GB. I have 16 GB onboard and Win 10. FormZ 9.2.0.1 (build A46A).

I wan't add this observation. Today same file as yesterday tooks memory only ~500 MB for formZ. Actually the file is now bigger 184 MB. This is odd. I'm not an expert. What is happening here?
