View Full Version : Raytrace reflection ( Lesser cost )

Hi Guys! Wanted to know what are the ways that we can fake or reduce the cost of rendering a scene with raytrace reflections?

lower the reflection depth

I agree. You might only need to set your reflection depth to 1 or 2.

What app? What render?

If it is 3DS Max and scanline, there was and old trick that you turn off the antialiasing, and then in your raytrace material, under Super sampling, enable local supersampler (max 2.5 star).

That should pretty increase your render speed.
