I’ve been doing some rendering on a couple of different platforms, Win 7 and MacOSX. I’ve done several renders using mental ray, and I’ve found that in general, the Win 7 box I use is about 20-30% slower than my mac. However, when rendering with Cycles, it’s literally 3x slower!
I’ve been scratching my head on this for a while, and then I read that Cycles doesn’t like Windows very much.
What’s going on here? This is real problem, is anything in the works to fix it? Am I just doing something wrong?
