Hey all,

A bit bored here, so I thought I'd see what everyones longest render time is, (Random I know)

My longest render time is still rendering accually,  heheh, It's almost done and at 108 hours 11 minutes 22 seconds

So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

56ish on TGD and 140-something in terragen classic. Space renders are fast
The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

@ Will: Hmm, TG Classic? wsa it an old PC? Or just a complex scene?

@ Calico: Wha?!?! heheh 700!?

Is that for single images or animations?  Because if you're talking about animations, it took the equivalent of 3 months of 24/7 rendering (about 2000 hours) for my TG 0.9 animation back in 2006.

That's my question as well...
Didn't make the anim that long, but it sure add's a lot! I believe it could actually be a whole month my current anim is running. But that's on 2 pc's both dualcore (so capable of 2 instances of TG2 rendering simultaniously).

Is this rendertime for one instance on one pc?
Howgh!

Yeah, that was one instance on my 1.5Ghz PowerBook G4 ;).

@ Will: Nice!

@ OB: Ouch, that must of been sore ;)

@: Mohawk: I was talking about single images, but long animation times work too :P

Yeah, there's a huge difference between single images and animations. I think my longest single image has taken around 6 hours (if I can see that it's going to take longer, I reduce the quality), whereas my longest animation has probably taken months (or even years) of non-24/7 rendering...

I only waited, since I went on vacation, after turning on the render.  I had to wait a few more days after my vacation for it to finish.  Hey, I thought, why not wait?
