    Raytraced 3d layers - rendering extremely slow - HELP

    Eddie4975 Level 1

      These are my computer specs:

      I7  - 4790 CPU @ 3.60 ghz

      16 GB RAM

      64 BIT

      WINDOWS 8.1

      DEDICATED VIDEO CARD - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745 with 4GB RAM

       

      I am trying to render a 1 minute clip which has about 10 seconds of raytraced 3d layers. I am rendering in media encoder cc 2014 at a high bitrate (h.264). It is giving me an estimated time greater than 8 hours, I am not sure why it is taking this long. Is there any specific setting I can change to make this faster?

       

      FYI: With any other clip that does not have raytraced 3d layers, it renders really quickly.

       

      any help is appreciated.
