Do I need to upgrade my computer to stop Revit 2014 from crashing during rendering?  

 

What would be the minimum recommendations for doing walk thru animation?

System requirements for revit are here http://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/revit-products/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/System-Requirements-for-Autodesk-Revit-2014-Products.html

 

If you are trying to do a rendered walkthrough in Revit you should probably think again.  It takes literally HOURS to do it even with a "super" computer, 300 frames would take about 24 hours or longer.  I have heard 3DS Max is an alternative

I think your biggest limitation is your 3 gigs of memory. I remember reading somewhere where the amount of ram needs to be at least 10 times the file size just to open the file. Then pile on the system overhead and the fact you are trying to render on a moble processor and I think you've outlined the problem. Of course, having a 32 bit system means you can only access 4 gigs of memory anyways. I would open up the task manager and monitor how much system resources are being used when you open the file and once you start rendering. If you're maxing it out then that might be a cause.

Another thing to look at is your video card drivers. I don't know exactly what API calls revit makes to a video card, but the crashing might be due to bad video card drivers. Just something to think about.
