This question already has an answer here:

So i got an intro from youtube.It looks really cool but the rendering takes 5-6 maybe 7 hours for just 10 seconds :( Is there a way i can pause it and then resume the render ANY time i want? Please say yes :D

  • Render as an image sequence, not as video, and compile later. In the output section disable the Overwrite option. That way you can resume rendering and not loose any of the already rendered files. – cegaton Aug 18 '15 at 8:27
