Solution

There are several solutions:

  • Remove the use of the GPU for processing in the processing options:
    1. On the Menu bar, click Process > Processing Options...
    2. Select the tab Resources and Notifications.
    3. Unselect the graphics card listed.
    4. Click OK.

  • Increase the timeout to allow more time to complete the really tough rendering parts.
     
    Warning: This may cause the screen to freeze sometimes when the GPU workload is high.
