I have 4 cores, with 2.3 Ghz each.
I have 6 GBs of RAM, 1 taken by vista, another 1-2 taken by various programs/Virus protections. (So I always have 3 GBs for blender.)
I let a 4 second animation bake and render for about 8 hours today, and someone said they couldn’t tell the difference between the 720p and 480p version. (It took so long because the liquid had a resolution of 300)
So, this got me wondering. Is it even worth rendering animations in 720p? Or should I stick with lower resolutions?
