    Q: I am getting an error that says "Attempted to read or write protected memory..."?

    A: This is often an indication of your GPU memory being filled.


    Here are some tips on how to manage memory:
    1. Delete unused materials: In the material tab, try right clicking and selecting 'Delete All Unused Materials and Textures'.

    2. Remove any extra environment's in the project that are not being used​.

    3. Try to keep your textures 1k (1024px x 1024px) and below​.

    4. Try to keep HDRI environments 4k (4096px x 4096px) and below​.

    5. Delete unnecessary geometry, which is not going to be visible in the final render.

    6. Once completed, save your project then close out Bunkspeed (This will free all history stored in memory "Undo and Redo feature")

    (Note: Running in CPU will also help in this situation, this will allow Bunkspeed to utilize the computers RAM instead of the GPU memory only.

    Last but not least, if this is happening regularly, you may consider upgrading to a video card with more VRAM.)
