Default nice, fast render for w.i.p...

do you have any trick to do a nice and fast render for when your model is still a wip and you dont want to spend much time on the render.please say something other than a simple clay render.

I would download the CTRL_Shading shader from CGtalk.com and use it instead of my lambert, then use the Oversampling Lens lens shader, added on to a standard Clay render.

Those two things have decreased render time by more than half.
