Hi, I’ve been having some problems with the Cycles rendering engine and hoped the community could help. My computer is somewhat old but it runs Blender fine. Whenever I go into render mode in Cycles it renders things pretty slowly. And when I try to preform other operations like, pressing a button, changing colors, it kind of “freeze moves,” movements get slow and freeze-y, this gets resolved once the objects have finally been rendered. My computer is a 2006 model HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. I was wondering is there anything that I can do to help speed up rendering time? I tried to change to GPU rendering in User Preferences but under Compute Devices, there is no option to change anything. I’ll give you some of my PC specs below. Any help would be appreciated.
