View Full Version : Rendering times...

04 April 2006, 05:47 PM
Hi everyone,

I am new to the forums and have recently aquired a trial version of Vue 5I.
It seems like a very nice bit of software and i really like the work i have seen.

Basically i have got to grips with how to use it for basics and i have made a few really small landscapes. They basically consist of about 4 trees and a few rocks.

I thought i would animate a little scene and simply wanted a camera scroll along my small island, however the rendering is simply outrageous! Even when working with the animation at 340x160 or around that, three seconds of animation took 4 hours to render!!
I cant even begin to imagine what times i would be looking at if i add a whole load of trees, more detail with a much higher resolution.

Am i missing something... Or is it just another drawback of the trial?
Obviously i can understand that hardware plays a huge part with this and i am using a Macintosh powerbook with 1.5GB Ram, and plenty of HD space... So why so slow? My spec is higher than the reccomended on the site by E-on.

We are litterally talking days of rendering for anything worth looking at.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance

Render times can be adjusted to give the best results in the least amount of time. Take a look at the tutorial I wrote.

If you have some spare computers around the house, Vue can network render on up to 5 computers.
