First of All, my system is Windows 7 64bit with a 1gb graphics board and 8 gb ram.

 

The issue i have is 2 projects keep rendering black, The only thing i see that they have in common, they were both originally done in RAC 2011 then finished in RAC 2012. I have rendered them when using 2011 so i know that it could be done, now when i try to Render it goe to 2% and crashes leaving a black screen. anyone know a fix or why this is happening? I have not changed any settings nor did i add any type of new interior or exterior lighting.

Does the following post help?  Specifically clearing the temp folder. Let us know:

If using 2012 you do not need that specific hotfix.  The main item to check is closing Revit and clearing the %temp% folder then attempting to render again.

Checked updates and installed, still didn't work there either? It does seem some jobs can render and some not.

If i'm rendering an Exterior Perspective " Sun only"  would interior Lighting Effect this?
