Listen to the advice others are giving.

Do you believe everything this "Super Render Product" is telling you. Please don't be so naive. There is no magic bullet here...

But they didn't give advise in detail if you think about it 1 person didn't first say nicely that users make the pictures lower for people in this forum sometimes. So that wasn't clear to me.

2nd I am doing what I think is best because if the youtube users did it in the way I'm doing it then I see myself being correct because on this forum like many others you don't have to follow everyones advise if you've already done it in the past.

I have Aspergers by the way and for huge changes it's hard to process as my mum and special needs people know alot plus I'm new here the web I was talking about must be true there gonna email me the status of what the total cost would be for a new fast way to render.

"On preferences my memory options is 9,999,999."

What exactly does this mean? That's how much memory you allocated to what? The numbers on that pref pane are in MB, so it may be that you are telling Cinema to use 10,000 GB of RAM. Gigabytes. Maybe C4D is using ALL the RAM in your system which means the OS has no resources to function. The OS or C4D is probably resorting to using the HD as virtual RAM which is very slow. Just a thought.

Not to mention that a laptop is not a great choice for a complex 3D project like that.

I think only you have been a bigger help to me so thanks and i'll reveal now that the lovely website that can help speed up Renderings is WorkStation Specialists. A product called RSR seems to be at benefit

That's a lot of money. You could buy several workstations for that money, use each one for other work AND use them for your own render farm.

Don't get me wrong, those are strong looking systems just from the look of your project it doesn't seem like you need all that.

WS are a reputable manufacturer, but their products are Windows/Linux based and mainly designed to work in integrated environments. I'm not sure how they can help, unless you're prepared to switch away from your Mac laptop. If you do that you'll be looking at spending quite a substantial sum of money - and judging by what you shown of your project so far, there's a great deal more to be gained by learning how to work smarter with the software.

Adam, you've been offered some good advice so far in this thread, almost all of which you've rejected out of hand (including advice on your memory settings from a guy who actually works for the Cinema 4D developers). I'm not sure what else anyone can do to help if you're not open to discussion.

Well were have to see as the number of environments I'm adding from my dreams is a quiet town close to beach and some nice grass hills with tree's and laying out different quiet roads to some areas like maybe 5 different villages that match my dreams and 1 or more towns that are close to beach. And 7 different areas with grass set to 3,000,000 like in real life billions of grass.

With all my dreams into 1 island :-)

I'm the one who made the remark about large screen shots so I'll say again what I said before and maybe that part of this thread can be put aside. I wrote "You're on a 17" MacBook Pro. If I screencap my entire 21" screen it's a third that size..." Now I'm also on a Mac, I know how to screencap with the Cmd-Shift-4 keys and that by default it generates a .png. But a screencap of my entire 21" screen, corner to corner, comes out at 741Kb, roughly one third of your image, so I'm wondering how a screencap from a 17"MacBook gets to be so big.

In case you think this doesn't matter, it does because there are people who will not wait to see your illustration of the issue about which you are asking for help and one of these people might just be the one with the answer you need.

Anyway there you are. Maybe I was a little testy in my remark so blame me for the part of this thread concerning screencaps and, I mean this, good luck with getting your problem solved.

Okay thanks and yes I just had no idea people would find it hard to open if forum allows it.

Anyways i'll keep saving by putting some £20s asside each week and look into earnings.

Adam, spending thousands on rendering hardware will NOT solve the problem you have.

You simply do it wrong currently and if you don't change what you are doing wrong you will only do it wrong very expensively!

I have her ein my cellar (well, actualy the MAXON cellar) a 40 Core (4 x 10 Core CPUs) rendering server with 256 GB of RAM.

That beast of a machine will take ages to render a scene that you have set up!

So either take the good advice you have been give from many people here or not, thats up to you. Just don't blame anyone else but yourself if things don't turn out as you expect them

I'm outa here

Cheers

I do think it will work haven't you seen the description on the site yet of what it can offer.

I told the company of what I'm looking out for and they recommended it to solve many planes with millions of grass on it and there from the UK plus it mentions that it supports Cinema 4D.

If it never did i'd report it to them for advice and refund that there happily do have a look and see what I'm talking about.

If you are a troll, congrats, you got me.

It´ll be close to 7 years before you can afford the hardware, if you put aside £20 a week... you can already do what you describe, if you start listening to the advice given to you....

My people know I am good at things like I have lot's of help through social services and NHS plus Rethink, UKSLS and Autistic Society.

It just sometimes takes time for people like myself with Aspergers Syndrome.

Like I find out by discovering a new thing to see who's right who ever would be right by the end of the experience is who I award and the 1 who didn't know I recap proof of discovery.

A bit like this my mum once thought that mymac was gonna get overheated like old laptops on top a small pillow without air vents being trapped. And luckily I was right because an Adamant IT expert in Shaftesbury said on macs they don't blow up if the air vents are not totally covered and mum now knows I was right.

IT'S ABOUT EXPERIENCE LET'S PUT IT THAT WAY

Arr but I thought this forum was about choosing only 1 person who can be helpful not everyone like in your past forum topics some people have thanked only 1 person like past years topics that I viewed and were locked.

Assuming you're not actually a troll then you really need to listen to what srek is telling you. He is well regarded here on the forum and elsewhere on the net and is an authority on these matters who works for MAXON. I guarantee you he knows much more about what will make Cinema4D run fast or not than the guys who are hoping to sell you an expensive machine. I'm a professional, I do this for a living so I know a lot about this subject and one thing I know for certain is that when srek offers advice it's worth listening to him. You should do just that in this instance.

That's because I thought he was still a learner like me that's why I was uncertain thinking if he was just saying it without knowing my idea.

But as mentioned I will find out the truth personally and see who's really right and award them okay.

NO MORE QUESTIONS AS I THINK WE'VE REACHED THE END OF THE TOPIC MATTER.

Adam, everyone is helpful on this forum, but Srek is the most helpful person you´ll find in the C4D community. I haven´t seen him give bad advice once in the 10 years I´ve been working with C4D. Good luck to you!

Okay it's just hard sometimes when 1 person says yes to something and the other person says no to something in the same subject and people with aspergers like me find it hard to know who to trust on which side but anyway i'll find out in the end.

Hi Adam

Have a look at this tutorial:

http://www.youthedesigner.com/2008/08/13/cinema-4d-tutorial-how-to-create-3d-grass/

It might be more efficient for the amount of ground you want to cover. One thing I have learned about cinema is it is best to try many different solutions to a problem as their is normally more than one way to skin a cat.
