Interior animation - 1920x1080p (render settings & time frame)
« on: February 20, 2017, 09:10:07 pm »
I am looking to render a 2.5 min animation of an interior building  fly through at 24 FPS.

FYI to get a good resolution "still image" Ive been rendering at 500 samples + which can take 3-4 hours to complete.
To render an animation of this length, and size at this sample level is going to take a very long time!

I require a high resolution, photo real finish in 1920x1080p, and need to render it out in under one week.
Can anyone suggest best way to approach this?
Is a cloud based render farm the best / only way to produce this?

Thanks
Shaun

Hi Shaun.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no 'trick' to make the rendering time shorter for animation than still, besides the obvious ones like using a lower resolution, less samples, more simple materials, etc...

Animations by their nature takes very long time to output.

I've been using www.3dotp.com for bigger projects and can highly recommend them. Very nice guys.
I also know that Nils Pirrma is offering some render farm. Might want to check that out as well: https://www.keyshot.com/forum/index.php?topic=13633.msg68176#msg68176

Good luck! I hope you manage to get it ready in time.
