I am working on my first ever animation, and I have realised if I turn off the material for my "ship" it drops the render time per frame by 50% for me, which is huge as they are around 1hr10min per frame at the moment.
I have tried to follow some tutorials, but they all seem to assmume I want to bake the light in, which I assume I dont want to, with an object thats going to be animated as its lighting will change?
So my questions are: 1) Is this the right thing to do at all? 2) If so what bakes do I do, and with what settings?
Here is the node tree, and blend file The material is called glowing grebble and is applied to the ship hull.
Thanks so much.
