    3d render times

    bwell Community Member

      I am trying to render a "final quality" 3d animation clip that is 5 seconds long. After 36 hours I cancelled the render.

       

      What is to be expected for render times for Photoshop CS5 for 3D animations, understanding that there are lots of variables?

       

      This kind of rendering time makes the tool unusable.

       

      Do I need to configure something differently on my system to achieve reasonable render times?

       

      I am using:

       

      Model Name:          Mac Pro

        Model Identifier:          MacPro5,1

        Processor Name:          Quad-Core Intel Xeon

        Processor Speed:          2.4 GHz

        Number Of Processors:          2

        Total Number Of Cores:          8

        L2 Cache (per core):          256 KB

        L3 Cache (per processor):          12 MB

        Memory:          8 GB

        Processor Interconnect Speed:          5.86 GT/s

        Boot ROM Version:          MP51.007F.B03

        SMC Version (system):          1.39f11

        SMC Version (processor tray):          1.39f11

       

      Any help much appreciated.
