Photoworks image size limited

Hi All,

I occasionally require a large image for a poster or similar, a lot of the time a screen dump from my 2560x1600 display is sufficient but when a large poster is required I use photoworks. Given I rarely use it, don't know much about it and don't have time to spend on this it's usually just stock lights and assembly materials.

Recently I was asked to do an image of an assembly for an A0 poster. I rendered to file and found that I could not render an image larger than about 3000px wide. It gave me an error message saying "not enough resources, render aborted" or similar.

I 'only' have 2Gb RAM, but looking at my memory allocation, it didn't even seem to be using all that. Is there some settings to allow photoworks to render a useful size image? Surely it can use a swap file or something, even if there's a speed penalty.

Spec is SW2008, XP Sp2, 2gb ram, Quadro FX3500.
