I can still choke a fast computer, even with a fairly simple scene.

11290 * 19200 = 216,768,000 Your render
1280 * 720 = 921,600 is 720p HD <-- what I usually render at

216768000 / 921,600 = 235.2 That is how many times faster it would be if it was in 720p.

Hate to break it to you, but your machine is not really that fast.. :D

I'd like to say this is the biggest render I've ever done, but I'd be lying. I did a larger one in 32-bit LW. Tiled, of course.

Not sure what's going on with this one, but I'll get it figured out.

as a wild guess with no idea what you are rendering, take a quick look in you scene for reflective objects very near other relfective objects and turn down your ray recursion limit.

After that, grab a book and pray to the gods of electricity supply for an uneventful 96 hours of uniterrupted service ;)

Wonder if this new plugin would help: http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?141358-New-Tool-Save-Regions

I always anticipate that and had turned down recursion to 3 or 2. I think my problem was: Lighting with a dome light plus radiosity, 8 samples of lighting, plus the render settings you can see in that graphic.

I've downgraded quality and size, and I'll upres in PS. The new render is already done.

Nice tool there, though. I'll have to keep that one in mind for the future! Figuring out the math with the View camera trick for each new project is beyond my addled brain, sometimes.
