faster render times??
show user profile  MrCaseStudy
im using vue in 3ds max for my background etc, i have to use mental ray for vue to work, i have also added some clouds to where the camera flys through and it will take a very long time to render, so my question is this: is there a prog to have quicker render times? without getting a new comp?

if you have to use mental ray, then that is the program/renderer. There may be faster renderers out but as far as I know, you can't plug them into max. You might have to just optimize your scene. Take out textures, lower shadow/render samples, maybe make it a smaller resolution, delete geometry, optimize geometry, render no shadows where they aren't needed (right click objects and uncheck cast shadows). This is a timeless obstacle especially with quality 3D, good luck...

Here are three easy steps to get shorter render-times.

1. Select everything in the scene.
2. Make sure everything is selected and press delete.
3. Hit Render.

i just recently worked on a massive project using vue, rendered inside 3ds max. it required literally hundreds of computers to render the environments; vue is "fast" for what it does, handling billions of polygons in trees,grass,clouds etc. but it demands a lot of processing power, and a lot of ram (like 128 GB for some scenes) .the render settings (like atmosphere, gi,ao,AA etc.etc.) can help you lower the rendertimes, but the lower the time the crappier it will look.

Open the side of your computer case and give the little hamster inside some lucozade.

Sir_Manfred, that could be scripted, to save time.

only way is cut down on quality. Use the native vue renderer to render the vue parts, it's faster then rendering it with mentalray/vray.
