I have a pretty beefy PC: RTX 2070, I7-9700K but somehow my Eevee animation ends up taking more than 1 minute per frame yet can render at around 10-50 FPS in the viewport with minimal quality loss compared to the full render, at around the same resolution. So, are there render settings that I should change to make the animation render faster? or is the Eevee render just super broken?
It seems like this is a fairly common problem, brought up in many unsolved questions: Why are my Eevee renders much slower to output than they are in a viewport?
Many have come to the conclusion that either the normal render does more calculations to make a more realistic image, or that it takes time to save the image to the disk.
If it is the first case, what settings can I change to make each render take the same time? I highly doubt it is the second case as it should not take more than a minute to save a 1mb file to my solid state drive.
And yes, I have tried the viewport render, which does speed things up substantially (like more than 50x faster than the regular render), but I'm still struggling to understand why the regular render is taking so long.
