I have never used blender besides rendering some intro templates. But, I decided to try to do some basic animating. I did 621 frames of the animation and I decided to render it out to see how it was going so far. I did it with PNGs so I could render the rest later. And it turns out its taking 40 seconds per frame so thats about 7 hours for 10 seconds!
My PC isnt that bad either, especially the GPU, which I am using to render with.
- GPU: Nvidia GTX 970
- CPU: Intel i5 4460
- Ram: 16 GB (Cant remember
whether it's DDR3 or DDR4 but RAM doesnt matter that
much I dont think)
- OS: Windows 10
If its supposed to take this long with a 970 then I don't know how animaters wait this long, especially ones with a lower end PC then mine.
Some additional Info about the settings I used:
- Samples: 128
- GPU rendering
- 256x256 Tiles
- 1280x720 resolution (720p)
