I am having LONG render time slow downs and I was wondering if its truely due to JUST my processor, or if my skill level on maya and mental ray is still to low.
Things that I see on the gnomonworkshop dvds that takes a few seconds (10-45) seem to take forever on my machine. Mental ray seems to have a real problem. here are my specs...
Neo 4 platinum msi motherboard
AMD 3000+ (939) <----is this the problem???
6800 ultra pci-e
4GB ocz ( mid grade stuff, not the value ram, not the real performance stuff)
500 watts, blah blah 7200rpm hard drive, etc...
Is there a way to manualy tell maya to use more ram? Do I have to do it in windows?
Any help would be appreciated!!
Thanks in advance!
