I am using Cycles Render to light and animate my model. I'm using a single light source (to represent the Sun) the model just rotates and moves towards the camera.
I know rendering is not fast but I am not looking for photorealistic results just something similar to the photo below. Preview renders are very fast and the quality appears to be acceptable, I would like to know how I can tweak a final render to push frames out to a similar speed as the preview renders (with little noise).
Currently, final renders are taking on average 6-8 minutes per frame, this isn't exactly terrible but I would like them to render as fast as previews which take around 30-40 seconds. I am using GPU Compute to render and my system is as follows:
Intel i7 4 core 6700K - 32gb Corsair Ram - Nvidia GTX 1060 6gb GPU - SSD for OS and SSD for programs - Windows 10 Pro -
Any advice would be great!
