For absolutely no reason clear to me, render time dropped to 6 minutes (less than half!!) (EDIT: Now 5 minutes, wtf, is my computer attaining sentience right now or something?!) during a test today. With masks for animation, I got it as low as 20 seconds! I was doing some tests of focal length, because I think the scene looks like I filmed a miniature or something, the perspective seems… odd. Am I finally starting to obsess about quality and/or minutia, I wonder? Anyway, different focal length tests, for your appraisal:
35 (as before, lower POV):
I’m thinking I’ll go with the 40, but comments are welcome!
