Short description of error
Adaptive subdivision modifier takes way to much memory
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
was playing with the Adaptive subdivision modifier and was trying out different values in offscreen and max subdivisions scale under render properties when all of a sudden this scene now wants 87 Gb of memory when rendering.
Even if I take away the modifier completely it still wants 87 Gb of memory when rendering. Something happened..
Before I made the above changes I had 6 copies of the cylinder far in the background, they where rendered but did not take more than 8 Gb in total. They where deleted before changes in properties.
