how often or easy is it to use more then 4gb of vram?
show user profile  debodeebs
Any ideas on what sort of scenes use more then 4gb of vram? I don't care about 4k gaming but still would like to produce 4k renders

Lots of 4K textures will eat ram. Moreso, working on a 4K PS file will grind everything to a halt.

As for modelling... as long as you don't have a million separate objects max will run fine(ish).

If you need to optimise use proxies.

I think he's talking about GPU rendering.

Archviz.
My last project ate 16 gb of RAM and 40 Gb of virtual memory to simply load a scene.

yes just gpu im talking about, lets just say if I was to do some quality interior renders is it possible to exceed 4gb of gpu memory pretty easy?
