Memory errors - I'm using Render to Layers at a high resolution, and I keep getting out of memory errors. What's going on?

When you Render to Layers, every layer is stored in memory (RAM). Rendering multiple layers at a very high resolution is simply a very memory-intensive process, so don't use a higher resolution than you need, and only render the layers that you know you will use.

You might also disable the "Full Composite" option or some of the other channel in the Render to Layers dialog; or otherwise experiment with ways to reduce your memory usage.

If necessary, you can render the layers separately.
