Rendering issue
show user profile  s33us00n
Long time since last posting's great to be back.
For now i need to render a 1 min animation and I'm having problems at the render time. I have 2 decent computers and after some calculations i figured it'll take me around 30 hours to render it all with both of them. So i came here to ask for advice. Is there in max a tool to fasten the rendering with reducing the things that make it so long to render?.I don't know yet what elements i need to take into consideration to reduce the render time. I use scanline renderer anyway.

Are there services on the internet for rendering, free or with payment? ----------------------------------------

Reducing time is often reducing quality.
Optimizing your scenes is an artform on itself.

and defenatly don't render to jpegs.

Use a lossless format, anything like PNG, TIFF, TGA or even BMP will work.

If you need it to be JPEG then resave it in Photoshop to JPEG instead, Photoshop's JPEG engine is a heck of a lot better than 3dsmax'.

I have another question and i thought it doesn't make sense to start another post. This time it is in Adobe Premiere. I hope it's permitted to discuss about applications other than 3d studio max.:).....Anyway I tried to add sound to a movie and when i try to export the final output i receive this error

It's the third time i tried to export it:(....Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Razvan ----------------------------------------

just as I thought, Vanghelis is your problem.
It should be VANGELIS.
