View Full Version : How to find out render time per frame?

06 June 2009, 09:17 PM
Hi there. I'm sure there is already a thread or two about this topic but the search engine has not been working for me this morning. I am twiddling with my mental ray render settings and want to easily find out how long it took to render the frame.

I am rendering using the command line as its much faster than the render view. How can I make my tweaks, render a frame using the command line, and see how long it took?

put -v 4 in the render parameters and it will report the render time.

Fantastic. Thanks for that.
