Hello Guys

i have some Problems with Keyshot  right now i have a very good 3D workstation at the company and sometimes Keyshot crashed when its in Idle mode or even when i start Keyshot after the Splashscreen! Anyone know some common Troubleshooting or Issues? How to run Keyshot whthout these kind of Problems?

What i have done!

Updated Keyshot 10
Updated windows
Updated Nvidia RTX 3090 Drivers
Updaded Adobe products

switched of some Software in the background which affect may be "Keyshot"
Restart PC
Run Antivir Programm (but i think its not the solutions as mentioned)

thank you very much for your help!


You can:
- in the preferences - set in general "Pause Real-time Render after time ... or samples ... -> so it don't idle to long (get bored and freeze)
- in CPU mode just don't use 100%, just reduce min. 1 physical core (most time I use the lowest value; in my case 25%, so my laptop's fan doesn't run to loud)
- just use a good working graphic driver and let a good running system untouched (think twice before an update)
