Hi,

Just wondering if there is a good method to estimate rendering times?
I am usually rendering in the region of 4600x3400 pixels for print, it would be good to have an idea on how long a particular render would take.

Thanks

Thats easy, just multiply the rendering time of your previews with the factor for the higher resolution, and don't forget the aa settings. So if a 800x600 (480000 pixel) renders in 1 hour, a 3200x2400 (7680000 pixel) renders in 16 hours.

Thanks,

Although I have tried this on a 1150x850 test render (977,500) pixels.
Rendered then at 4600x3400 (15,640,000) pixels and it should be around 16sec according to this,although the render takes around 33sec?
