Game design / PovRay rendering time...
« on: December 06, 2007, 12:46:26 AM »
Does anyone else use povRay? I'm trying to find the optimal rendering time vs quality on my system, and with a relatively simple scene it takes forever. (2 HOURS plus)

This one took just over 1 hour, at 800 x 600 with low quality radiosity


This one took almost 3 hours, and it's on medium quality for both. I'm not sure if I can live with the jagged edges and the grainy floor.



The question is...is this supposed to take this long? I've been away from the 3d scene for years, and I thought things have sped up since then. (and if it has, and it's just hardware - onboard ATI Radeon X1250 - could someone point me to a reasonably priced graphics card?)
