Matt Sugden Posted April 8, 2009 Share Posted April 8, 2009 Hi I am working on a project this week and the client has asked me to render a large version of the image out for print. Essentially he wants a life size printout out of a very large TV/Wall unit cabinet of dimensions about 5m x 2.7m. I have spoken to the printer and he has requested that I produce a resolution of half 'real size' @ 300dpi. Now I have just got my calc out and estimated that by this reckoning I will need to produce an image at 2.5m x 1.35m or (1000inches x 540inches) then multiplying my 300dpi, gives me a whooping 300,000 x 162,000 pixels!!!!! Surely this can't be correct? or if it is, surely it is not necessary or practical to produce something of this kind of resolution? I'm rather worried about the technical aspects of producing such a big image, as at present a 2000x1500 pixel images is taking 2hours to render. What would you guys suggest? I'm pretty up against it time wise so any advice would be great. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
