Good afternoon everyone. So I'm currently using a GeForce GTX 1060 and my processor is an Intel i5 6600k but my render time for 1 frame is about 5 minutes which to me in way more than it should be.
Of course I'm using the cycles engine and here are my settings:
A file for the project I'm working on can be found here (yes it's a Minecraft scene)
I have some experience with Blender and understand most of the basics and the settings but can't wrap my head around why this would take so long.
The questions I basically need to know are
- Is my render time about where it should be
- How can I speed this up (note my settings cause I've already changed a bunch)
- Would it be advised to use Blender Internal if there is no other way of speeding this up
- How do I know that my graphics card is working to its fullest (GPU rendering has been enabled in the settings and on the right tool bar)
Thanks for your time ^_^
