I’m on linux ubuntu 9.04 using blender 2.49. I want to render my animation from the commandline as blender seems to stop the rendering process when I lock my ubuntu desktop and the commandline continuouse working.
After tracking the times I discover that the same scene takes approximatly 40secs per frame on the commandline and only 25 secs in blender.
Command line used is blender -b blendfile.blend -o //renders/render -S Base -s 1 -e 301 -a
Any reasons why commandline rendering is so much slower? Any tips on improving the commandline rendering speed?
Or does anybody have a tip of preventing blender from stoping rendering when locking the desktop?
Thanks for any replies
