How can you tell before starting a rendering that the forementioned rendering is going to take hours to complete??
I do renderings quite often. One might take 10 minutes and another may take 2 hours. Sometimes there may be very little difference in the two assemblies being rendered. What is the best method for making an educated guess as to how long a rendering might take before starting the rendering, and then 3 hours later it is too late to abort?
I also thought that this was supposed to be getting better with SW 2012
SW 2012 SP 1.0
Win 7 Pro 64 Bit
Intel Xeon QuadCore 3.33 GHz
12 Gig Ram
NVidia Quadro FX 1800
