I spent last lockdown trying to push my knowledge a bit farther and touched several new aspects of blender:
- Fluid sym
- keying and compositing
- out of topic: after effects video compositing
I am on a new MacBook 16” and, to give you a benchmark: to render a vfx video made by a still render and a 12 min video, it took me almost 12 hours.
This is just to clarify probably my request is not just connected to my poor level of knowledge about rendering setups.
I was trying to import a keyed clip (8 seconds) to work directly in blender, every time I tried to adjust a light a prop or anything, it took me so long, I had to give up as the cycles preview mode was sending me crazy.
I am a noob, but still a nerd lover of vfx and blender and I would like to go ahead both with blender and after effects even I won’t became a new Ian Hubert
I would like to have from you some mid level suggestions for an assembled pc to have more chances to create something more.
Should I start with a gaming laptop?
Would it be better a desktop pre-assembled?
Shoul I go for a custom one focusing just on HDD and video gpu?
I don’t want nor need to invest lot’s of money as this is just the beginning and don’t want to invest 3k€
Can you help me?
