Physical Render Speed VS. Quality Knob?

Recommended Posts

DragonSeer    2

I have inherited a C4D project that renders very very slow.

Where is the Speed Vs. Quality knob for the Physical Renderer?

 

I notice caching taking a lot of time. Is there a way to save this so I only have to do this once?

This is a hi-res  single image writing to the .PSD format.

Simplistically speaking, Adaptive / Automatic - then Error Threshold is the quality slider. Set to 50% for fast noisy renders, 5% for slow but good quality.

 

Of course it isn't quite as simple as that; all the other settings in there (Blurryness, Shadow and AO subsampling) have a big effect as well, so you can adjust those numbers up and down too (usually in increments of 0.1), though they work the opposite way - the higher the number the slower the render and the greater the quality. Be careful to avoid too high settings here, lest your render time gets ludicrous... but conversely though - set these to 0 for the fastest and worst renders the engine can do !

  • Thanks for the reply.

     

    So where is the Adaptive/Automatic check box?

     

    I did find the Error Threshold under Option of the Render Settings.

    That's not a checkbox, it's a mode of the physical renderer. Please do look in your manual, which does explain all this !

  • Yep, I was looking for that under the Standard render options.

    Remember that Team Render now can handle still images too.  ::):

     

    Of course, like @Cerbera mentioned, it's not that simple. We don't know what's in your scene (scene or screen shot would help), what your settings now or what machine you're running on.
