I have a comp that is taking forever to render. The comp is 3d, has particles, motion blur, camera wiggle, and is 5 minutes long - thus the long render. I had it rendering for 2 and a half days and then the external drive that I was using got bumped and it disconnected, so I lost the render. I'm about to restart, but I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to make it render faster.
Does it make a difference whether I render to a local drive as opposed to an external? Here are my current memory settings: http://d.pr/i/8a1l
Also, if I use Adobe Media Encoder to render rather than rendering right from After Effects, does that make any difference?
