I’m modelling something that has many small pieces which I made with an array modifier. If I “apply” the array modifier (and maybe other modifiers too, like solidify), will I see longer render times than if I don’t apply it? Or are they identical as far as the render engine is concerned?
It would be helpful to apply my modifiers, however I don’t want my render to go through the roof.
Is there a way to make many different things that each have modifiers to become “one” thing - without applying the various modifiers?
