i ve tried to render ny image in 2000x1500 pixels in max. then assigned the vray rederer. fixed rate, gi on, and other lighting values assigned. but even after long hours it can not complete its pre passes. is this because of the high resolution assigned? but for a4 quality printing i need to render it atleast in the 1800 pixels rather than 800. i usually make tiff out put with 150 pixels/inch assigned. but that seems impossible to me to render with vray.
i don't know how can i manage the rendering time. can any one help me?
i am using p4-2.8 mHZ hiperthrading processor, intel 965 gbl mother board, 1.5 gb ddr ram(400 hz) and 128 mb gforce grafics card.
after wards i ve assigned 800x600 pixels and render it again. but then it takes hardly a few minutes to cimplete the rendering.(20-25 minutes). i am ver ymuch confused.
another thing i must mention that, i use 3d max 7 with vray demo. the image i ve rendered with 800x600 pixels, i am attaching below.
i ve used ies sun light(1) with vray shadows.
but if this problem persists (i can not render higher resolution images) i will be helpless.
