I am a beginner with Blender, at the moment rendering my very first small simple animation. Can anyone please suggest why render times would be almost the same on different capacity computers?
First I tried to render on my own laptop (Mac) which has no special separate graphics card, has 8 GB RAM and 20 GB free space. The average render time per frame was 5 min 20 s.
Then I sent the .blend file to my friend who has a Mac with 4GB graphics card, 16 GB RAM and 200 GB free space. Average render time per frame was 4 min 50 s.
Is it normal or do we have to change some settings somewhere to speed it up on the greater capacity computer?
