Pause rendering process?

Pause rendering process?

Postby lasswt » Tue Sep 17, 2019 12:37 pm

Hello

I have been using this program a lot lately and been impressed with it so far. But I'm a complete newb. What I really want to know is if you can pause the rendering process of an animation and continue later on?

I'm currently rendering a 17 second animation in V-Ray quality so naturally this is gonna take a while. I'm rendering 1 frame per hour and with around 1000 frames this is gonna take more than a month combined.

Is this normal or is there some way to reduce the rendering time without sacrificing too much image quality? And if not is it possible to pause the rendering process and continue later on?

Thanks

Edit: I'm rendering with 60 frames per seconds. Is this too much?

This is not supported for the time being, but with rendering, it makes a lot of sense as each frame can takes minutes or more to be generated.

I would suggest you try with Natural rendering (e.g. NO rendering) and see which frame rate is appropriate. To me, a frame rate of 36 should be already quite good for human eyes.
Note that you can also play with the speed of the movie.
