Short description of error
Tried to render 170 frames several times with blender render, but no success.
Rendering freezed first time on frame 95 then on 49 then on about frame 50.
After freezing Blender ist "dead". I have to "kill" the program with right click on the Program icon in the dock.
The laptop fan seems to work hard.
A render-test with with the cube of the start view worked (250 frames, rendering finished before the fan starts workin hard).
On OS Sierra (not High Sierra) and Blender 2.78 everything worked fine.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Resolution 1920x1080, 50% or 100%
Start frame 1, end frame 170, rate 24, step1
