Render Faster With Mac

Well here is what is looks like with 3000000 hairs plus 3000000 fill hairs option.

I might need extra to make sure I can't see the plane texture.

So what's the plane texture? Is it some kind of white? Here's what I wold do. Make a new material with a texture map of grass or something that will help fill in the holes. Apply that material to your plane. Now your gaps blend in without the extra 3 million hairs. As RustEdge said, many times you need cheat. Fake it. Trickery.

Just a thought.

And why the heck are you uploading a 2.19Mb screen shot? You're on a 17" MacBook Pro. If I screencap my entire 21" screen it's a third that size. Have some consideration.

I've done that already as the plane already has the green texture but I've found a spectacular site that could help with fast rendering i'll reveal the surprise later in 2 weeks but thanks for your help. :-)

What I did was this once the scene is rendered you can take a screenshot of the scene by holding Command shift and 4. I only wanted to show the render speed as proof to what @rustEdge had mentioned.

I'm afraid you're missing all the points we just brought up.

You're relying on brute force to get what you're trying to do (Seriously, I can see everyone who replied to your queries to render out a better shot with at least twenty times the speed on a weaker machine.)

Also, you could've compressed the "screenshot". This is almost as bad as saving something out as a .bmp a decade ago.

Please set your prefs back to default, you realy messed up memory settings and i don't want to know what else you changed in a similar way. Those settings are there for a reason and the reason is to avoid unneccesary blocking of ressources. What you did is basicaly crippeling your system.

For the gras in that scene more then a couple of hundred guides is a waste and since it is all very short stuff you can get away with very few guide and hair segments (3-4 for guiides and 4-6 for hairs).

You realy have to learn to set up a scene before you start thinking about aquiring more ressources (faster CPU, more memory ...). Whatever spectacular site you found on rendering, it won't magicaly make your setup fly.

Sure. But, having taken the screen dump, all you had to do was save it as a JPG rather than a PNG. At 80% quality it reduces to 310K and still looks fine. It's the work of a few seconds to do. You could even reduce it more but a 2Mb+ screen dump is a bit silly.

But as mentioned wouldn't it be good to have a file with all backgrounds in it even though it would take alot of memory that's what my aim is as a student and I know what can help me as I've found a good website and i'll be saving up for that particular thing.

But I followed youtube Tutorials on how to render faster and that's how I learn't them and 99999999 is the max of memory so you don't need to worry anymore as mentioned I have found a better site you'll see in a week because on the site they say they can speed up with faster systems for a file with lot's of backgrounds as a progress world all done by me.

Yes but I prefer the screenshot version of what my brother taught me and who knows if your talking about a big screenshot the size of my screen then maybe 1 day i'll look into that but for now is little screens only takes 5secs.

What we're trying to point out is that some people aren't fortunate enough to have a fast internet connection, and to them, a 2Mb screenshot is a serious inconvenience. Please do think of others before sending large images like that when it is so unnecessary.

I think you are missing the point, as long as you keep the scene as it is nothing you do to your system or CINEMA will make it go fast.

If you post the scene we might be able to point out what slows you down.

No I'm telling you the truth because the site I went to has sales for the best products and they ship worldwide.

I'm not joking they have mentioned the fast products to get your renders going fast and saving up alot of money for it should be at benefit.

You will be amazed so for now be patient and i'll reveal the site once I found out the product that they recommend.

That's because I had no idea that some people still get bad internet these days I thought it improved so I'm not to blame and I'm still new here as I started last week. I thought ones who would like to see a screenshot had no problem to viewing it well remember next time to only ask me if you can view at the amount I've attached. Because if C4DCAFE allows me to upload it by that amount then surely it will be fine.

So yes only ask me if you can view it by 2MB as to what I did.
