Almost certainly, I would say.

I can't imagine a 3D-modelling and rendering program running with just 2MB CHIP RAM.

I used to run Imagine 2.0 on my A500 with 1M if I remember correctly, maybe that's the one you had back in the day? I never tried 3.0, but just like 4.0 and 5.0 needs 4M to start, I'm guessing 3.0 needs more memory as well.

the limitation is amount of available free memory (probably continuous block). I tried IM 3 and 4 and 5 in WinUAE with CHIPRAM only and both refused to start with just 2 MB CHIP. 4 MB CHIP, though, was ok.

On real Amiga, you really need FAST RAM (at least 4 MB) for any serious work, unless you work with IM 2.0. FPU is also very helpful.
