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?

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?

Can't wait to see it.  Hopefully, we will not get the next version mid-render.

My sexy clouds render originally took 12 days and 18 hours. I eventually cancelled it and rolled back some of the settings. Haven't tried it with the new TP3 though. Can't find it actually, damn!
