Hey i have a question concerning my scene rendering time.
I Have quite a large scene of a room with the sizes of 9X7 meters and i'm using mental rays global illumination in conjuction with final gathar in order to light it realisticly.
i have a very high amount of photon intensity being emitted by one of my light sources(about 3 million) and 200 thousand photons are being emitted.
A render of this with global illumination and final gathar checked takes me 11 minutes and thats only the room itslef without all the objects that in it which are unchecked.
I tried increasing in the memory and performence section in memory limits the amount of phisical memory from 512 which is the number i have to 1024 or up but there is no real change in render time.
I have mac osx with 2 gb of ram
Are there any other way of decreasing my rendering time? when ill have all my objects checked it will take me hours to render...
