Arrow Please Post all your Ways to reduce RenderTime

Hi All!

I got quite a big job to do.

The scene files are heavy, with lots of detailed nurbs and polygon shapes.

I need to finish until next friday but with todays planing i will only have about 2,5 days to render.

So i need ways to reduce render-time without loosing quality ...


Thank you very much,

Ulrich

optimise your shadow sizes. Use light linking to only illuminate objects that need to be illuminated by that light, dont use GI_Joe, if you are raytracing then only raytrace objects that need it, use render layers to reduce re-rendering , use 2d images on planes where possible, use LOD (not maya's though cause it sucks ass)

that's about it really as far as I can think of.
