hdtv 1080 rendering
show user profile  is
Hello everyone,

I am doing a rendering on hdtv 1080 format. It takes +/- 8 hours. I have 6GB of RAM.
Is this enough? Or should I buy more? Or is there any other way to make the render time shorter.

Memory doesn't necessarily affect render times. It's more likely to be the shadows, raytraced elements, GI, etc.

Faster PC = quicker renders.

no it is not enough, buy more ram
open task manager and check performance where you see the ram usage bar
if it is always near full you need more ram
playing with hd below at least 12gb is like racing F1 in a gocart, just saying..

Mr. Clark, what do you mean by Faster PC. How do you make it faster?

to make it faster you put some wheels on it and push real hard

Faster CPU/More cores = faster renders
Better graphics card: faster viewport speed.
More RAM = max can handle bigger, more complex scenes

You haven't mentioned what render engine you're using but the help file for Vray has good info regardless. Read the part below "Excessive memory usage while rendering"

and what 'grotey wrote sums it up concisely.
