Saving up memory tips

Hey guys,
Do you have any tips on how to save memory in vRay 3.6 while doing interior renders?

I have 32 GB RAM and vRay uses up all the memory while doing pretty barebone interiors with only furniture placed, no garbage lying around.

Cheers

Check the displacement, could be a memory killer.

I have displacement on literally every texture in the scene. Okay, time to sober up. (Bloody Blender Guru and his Poliigon textures.) :smiley:

Thank you, skysurfer!

Doe’s anybody know where can be found the global options to control the displacement? At VfR2 I used the global max subdivs often. A small value like 30 helps to keep the RAM usage low. Is it only at material level possible anymore?
