Render Time Calculator
show user profile  reeves1984

Been working on this for a couple of weeks in the evenings and what not. Converting a google spreadsheet I made to a webpage. Would be good to hear feedback on it!

I hope there are enough twitter and fb buttons on there for ya

That's cooool! Then again, I kinda like doing mental maths when rendering. But it's pretty useful working out the allowable total time / acceptable time per frame. Good shit.

[edit] P.S. forgot to say, you earned a facebook "like" from me. That's pretty rare, just so you know.

Cheers Nick - it's slightly better than doing rough maths,

ie. (frame time * frames) / machines

instead it takes into account frames left over.

If you have 11 frames to render,10 machines and each frame takes 1min.
(1 * 11) / 10 = 1.1mins

But really it should be 2mins because all 10 machines render the first frame, but then 1 of those machines need to render again that one left over frame for an extra min.

ooh typo, good one.

Don't understand the second part.

I know. you'll get there.

only one machine, though you can whack multiple high end graphics cards in for limited audience leading edge sites/demos.

such is real-time. realise that's not what this is for so apologies.

Just used this to get some end-render times (and I'm too lazy to use the calculator). Awesome. Thanks for making it.
