Tile rendering? 6k spherical map = 40 hours on renderfarm :(
« on: April 07, 2014, 08:33:37 AM »
Hey,

Over the weekend I sent off a 6k 8k and 10k Spherical map to the render farm and the 6k one took 40 hours to complete where as the other two were nowhere near finished. These 3 renders were only rendering on one machine each and I was wondering if it was possible to do tile renders via Terragen so I can have multiple machines working on the one spherical map?

Thanks

You can do this using Crop Regions, but you will need to provide some overlap for each region (which lowers efficiency), calculate the total GI solution into a cache file ahead of time, and manually reassemble the resulting crop renders into a final image using 3rd party software (either something like PTGUI, or Photoshop).
