well, those are the hardest to figure out :?
What does the exporter console say?
What did you change, when the bug showed up (first, if more than once)?

Just gave some meshes meshlight-tags and changed lighting type from sun to none. Meshlights all have efficency scale.
Render crashes in both MLT and Pathtracing-Mode. Logfile as said contains no error report.
:cry:

that's strange...did you check the normals?
There aren't any visible normal problems, in the scene, before, but who knows...

Ok, that doesn't lead to crashes, though :?

Normals are fine. I even made a test render with a meshlight under water to see if there are problems but it worked fine. The other meshlights all are copys of this one i tested with. :?
Maybe there are to many lights or something? (if there is something like a max. meshlight-count)

I never heard anything like that, yet... :?
Maybe, it helps, if you post the scene :)

What do I have to post? *.igs or textures and models also? because this would be huge... :D
btw. resuming the rendering works fine, let's see for how long...
for awesome 17 minutes...

igs...
models should be there, too...
but without the textures.
(just to test, if it works, here^^)
maybe also the original scene file before exporting.
Did you try to re-export it?

wait, which modeller do you use, again? ^^

Hmmm... there's definetly something wrong with meshlights. Currently i'm rendering a version as a flaslight test (So i just deleted the meshlights of the night version and added on meshlight next to the camera) and after 1 1/2 hr and 1100spp it works fine. Next thing to try is playing around with render settings. I think that there are maybe simply to much meshlights so that after a specific time a max. count of paths or something is reached an so Indigo quits. Currently I have no explanation...
edit:
I reduced polycount of meshlights and it seems to work well until now. nearly 2 hrs of crashfree rendering :o

Rendered this at standard setting of 2 I think. Original resolution was 1920x1080.

you still didn't change the red...
and the eaves gutter needs some colour and texture, I'd say...
else, it's fine :)

Windows don't have frames. Looks good.

Yeah I know, I removed the ones of the fewer versions because they were quite useless in the way I built them, but in Final there definetly will be windows+frames ;) Thx for comment!
