I'm quite new to XSI, just got my stack of digital-tutors training material. Anyway, i was going through a final gathering chapter, I notice that when I render a region speed is quite good, after a bit of loading time. It's not super long, but the loading time is longer than the rendering time.
Is this normal? Am I making any sense? Any tips on how to improve the speed?
I'm using an amd x2 4200 (dual core), with 2 gigs of ram if that helps.
