View Full Version : Maya Fur Files very slow

09 September 2004, 10:32 PM
I am generating fur files using adv fur rendering so I can distribute the frames over renderwall.
But it is REALLY slow to generate the files and seems to be related to the poly count of the fur surface. I have already reduced the poly count by 50% and lowered the fur generation from 3 mins to 30 secs per frame but how can i get this faster?
It only seems to run at about 35% of CPU, tons of wasted cycles

It probably only uses 35% because you have hyperthreading and it isnt multithreaded.

do you have your project set to network drive?
it is 1000% faster if you set it to local directory.
