SSS Preprocessing Advice
im working on this project which requires the use of SSS on a fairly simple animated human head.
I was hoping anybody could highlight to me the reason behind the 1-2min+ of preprocessing it takes before it starts rendering a frame, this duration of preprocessing seems to only occur when using SSS.
I originally thought that it was because of the displacement map detail but i have removed it and still the amount of time before the image actually starts to render is un-changed.
Iím working on a tight deadline and have a substantial amount of frames to render and this 1-2min of preprocessing is going to be a major problem.
Iíve already changed the anti-aliasing and sampling contrast, both of with shortened/lengthend the actual render itself but the preprocessing was unchanged.
I would greatly appreciate any advice, information and/or useful links that would help to reduce the amount of time it takes to preprocess.
thank you for your time
