Does multiple passes increase render time ?
on Nov 28, 2013 at 8:48:41 am

Hi,,
I separated my color channel into 3 passes for render ; diffuse, specular , indirect lighting and master beauty .
It was taking a long time to render so I decided to just render my Master beauty and specular passes but I failed to see an increase in render speed so I would like to know if multiple passes increase render time ?
If not i could use multiple passes to make work easier during composition.


Another question, does creating a separate ambient occlusion and shadow layers as opposed to a single master layer also increase render time ?

any for of help would be much appreciated
