Hello everybody I hope all is well in Blenderland. Im working on my first animation that includes an hdri map, fluid simulation, camera tracking, synched to a song. I have 775 frames, after 16 hrs, its on frame 180. After doing a little bit of research I was wondering for my pc setup if this is good time or not. I have XEON E3-1231, GTX 780 3gb, H97 PRO4.
I was wondering if preview samples setting matter during final render? I couldnt find any info. about that. I did put my pc in sleep mode last night. Doing some reading this morning…it seems that it matters on what you are rendering to put your pc in sleep mode. Im new to Blender, may be wrong. Using fluid simulation/animation should I have put my pc in sleep mode? Here’s a snapshot/render shot to help out. In snapshot, you cant see Performance settings its 256x256. During the final render animation I increased samples from 512 to 1000 samples, snapshot is wrong. If this is normal time because of my rig then thats cool. Any tips would greatly be appreciated.
Well…close to 24 hrs. and Im on frame 217, that has to be too long. I guess Im going to hit esc. and make some adjustments, lower samples. Thanks for the input Daedalus_MDW I’ll see if any of that helps. I guess I can use this animation project as I learn more about rendering.
