Hi,

I have done some quick tests with the new grass basic settings on a large field (426m x 84m). It is very Ram consuming :(
On a smaller field (22m x 10m), Ram comsuption is quite fair.

During fire rendering or Maxwell render rendering. I did not render with lw off course.

I was asking about LW because I wanted to make sure the ram isn't taken up by the viewport preview. The render itself can consume a lot of memory for grass because it's a geometric solution so it has to keep data about each blade. Multiply 426 by 84 and then by the density you've used and it will probably be a lot of blades.

Thanks for this reply. It is what i though it is (true geometric and not instancing)
