Did this tutorial yesterday https://vimeo.com/49597954
It is a simple glass of water. There is only two elements - the glass and the water. Using the “Raytaced” mode really has a major impact on my puter (i7 7700k, 32GbRAM, GTX1060.6Gb, SSD etc) It’s so bad I cant scroll smoothly while browsing the net when its running. Also, if I try to enter a command at the Rhino cmd prompt, I have to wait a little for the letters to actually pop-up. It’s using the GPU.
Is this typical??
Also, the raytrace takes over 7 minutes to complete. Is this an expected time frame?? (I know nothing about rendering at all, so have no experience as to how long things should take (But it does feel like a long time to me). Perhaps the material makes a difference (it being transparent etc)
Further…right at the end of the video…during the tutors final comments, his raytrace is running and the image counts out to 25 secs - and the result is a way superior image to the one I see on my screen for the same time frame?? Why is that??
The video was posted 6 years ago - so there is no way their Hware should come close to a machine built today (unless it’s somehow offloaded to a render farm or network machine??)
So…what am i doing wrong. Perhaps its a setting in my setup that is causing this result??
Here is my system setup as per Rhino…I am using an expired evaluation version so can’t save the model for uploading. Thanks.
