Let's say I have a huge project with a rendering time of 1000 hours or more. I don't want my PC to work non-stop for that long. I want to say something like, 'Please stop rendering now and continue where you have left off later when I tell you to.'

  • $\begingroup$ Is suspending the process an option for you? Or perhaps, do several renders with fewer samples and different seeds and compose by hand? $\endgroup$ Dec 4, 2016 at 14:52

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to the site. Afaik this wasn't yet implemented, and the answers are either suspend process, or render image sequence if that's animation. $\endgroup$
