You could use a Compositing Tag on the troublesome elements and force the AA just for those elements. Might help with the render times.

That sounds intriguing. Can you elaborate? I don't think there are AA controls within the compositing tag. Do you just mean to run off some object buffer passes?

OK, I've never used this myself so I'm no expert but there are AA settings in the Compositing Tag under a check box called Force Antialiasing and then you have the same settings as in the AA tab proper. I assume that this Compositing AA setting allows you to set the AA however you want it for the individual object that the tag is attached to and independent of the main AA settings. This would mean that you could push the AA up just for the problem items and so keep your render hit to a minimum. Check the documentation, or maybe someone else can put me straight on this if I've got it wrong.

Cheers
Karl

Phew, so I didn't just make a fool of myself! [img]http://www.c4dcafe.com/ipb/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif[/img] This would mean, depending on how many problem areas you have, that you could absolutely max the AA on those and not take much of a render hit.
