    reducing comp size doesn't reduce render time



      I have been trying to understand this weirdness but haven't figured out yet.


      I have 1920x1080 comp that takes 6hours and 17 minutes consistently.

      I change output setting to render only half (960x540) and it takes about an hour and 23 seconds.


      Now, i created another comp out of 1920x1080 comp that has size of 1280x720 to reduce render time and i expected it to take far less time like 4hours.

      It actually took 6 hours and 16minutes consistently, so there was no change in rendering time.

      I rendered this small comp using the exact same setting, only size is different.


      All these numbers are after clearing memory cache and minimum # of other applications running.


      Why is this taking the same amount of time?
