Apropos Posted October 1, 2004 Share Posted October 1, 2004 Cinema 4D running on 1.44 G4 Powerbook with 1gig I am rendering a large timber / stone / glass building and have had to model ALL the (many) timber louvres so as to get the effect I am after. There is no context as I will composite the building with Photoshop. I have turned off reflection on all materials except the glass and set the glass texture tag not to generate GI. My G4 laptop has been rendering for 36 hours solid and is only 1/3 the way through the final render. I am using a Dosch HDRI Sky with no other lights. The settings I am using are as follows; Radiosity:100% Accuracy:55% Stoch: 200 Min res: 10 Max res: 150 Prepass size 1/1 AA=Best I am hoping that it may finish rendering by sunday evening (2.5 days) Is this a normal render time for a relatively large model? If not, what can I do to reduce it - I desperately need these images by tuesday next week so your urgent replies would be welcome. Thank you. Jason.
