I was wondering if anybody could help me with my render settings.
I am trying to render out a light pass (only the lights layer on with everything else as a mask) for some volumetric lighting in my project.
My intention is to add this pass to my after effects file so I can adjust it individually.
my question is - is there a specific way I am supposed to do this? I have a really strong computer, but my render times are nearly 20 minutes a frame. Most other things I render with similar settings render out only take maybe 5 minutes a frame. Even with High reflections.
I have added an atmosphere with a density of .2, my samples are at 1000, my volumetric lighting light samples are all the way down to 0, and the result is looking good, I am just wondering if there was something I could adjust to make it not take so long.
Sorry for the lengthy question, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
