Speed up Raytrace (Scanline)
show user profile  FX
Is there a way to speed up ray-tracing ? I'm trying all settings but nothing seems to affect the frame render time, it's 50 seconds irrelevant of the output size.

Been a while since I rendered scanline, switched the project because vray takes too damn long.

The best way to speed up the scanline is to not use it.

You could always try Quicksilver.

lol, I've never used MR so don't fancy learning it as I go whilst building this animation, nor Quicksilver.

anyway I've done enough to send the client a preview, went for reflect refract instead of raytrace.

Gotta be 7+ years since i touched scanline too. :/

Lol, I hope you have a parallel port for that dongle!

3.1 was a good release.
