Can you tell me, why this is not rendering in 6K? (It does in 1920x1920px)

Hey all,

I have a bottle with transparent "liquid" in it and some condensation drops on it. It renders fine in 1920 (GPU about 18 min) and I already rendered a version in 6144x6144px (GPU about 2hrs). But now I had to change the condensation (fewer drops, slightly changed bump map). And now it pretends to render (same in "render to PV" and render queue). But I left it run for about 10hrs already. Then I canceled the render (cancelling crashes C4D every time, btw).


This is my rig:


And here's the file:

(Just changed the 4k label texture with a 4k UV-grid texture, because of client).


Thank you for any hint!

Is it necessary to render in 6K? You could just upscale it using some AI tools. It's probably because you don't have enough VRAM.

Thanks fot the reply! Actually 6K is the bare minimum, because it will be a 2m display tray. In the meantime I actually managed to render it. I reduced some of the texture files and purged memory and such things. So you're probably right about VRAM. 

If that did not work I was thinking about rendering tiles using the cameras "film magnify" and "film offset". But I am happy it worked out this way...

Thx again!
