System Requirements

The Hardware You Need


System requirements1
System Requirements

  • For general animation and rendering

    • CPU – Dual Core 1.4 GHz or equivalent AMD

    • RAM – 2GB (4GB recommended)

    • OpenGL or Direct3D capable graphics (256MB)

    • Swap Space – 4GB

  • For large scenes and complex data sets

    • RAM – 8 GB

    • Swap Space – 8GB
