I have the preview set at "Good" and the Final Render set to "Best" and sill the preview shows a better image than the Final Render. The final has all the edges lines showing up in the render.
Do you have Contour Rendering toggled on in your PV360 Options? If you do toggle it Off.
Anna - Thanks for replying!
I don't have the file that I did that rendering with me here at work. When I get home this afternoon I will check that option.
I have one other question. I just purchased an Zi Computer for home that I did the above rendering. As soon as I start the rendering I can hear a loud reving sound coming from either the processor or Video card (not sure). As soon as the render is completed, the computer is as quiet as can be. I was led to believe that the liquid cool processor which I purchased is very quiet reason for me questioning this.
Just to compare, I did the same rendering on a Precision M6600 and I did not hear any sound different from how the precision normal working conditioin is.The spec for the xi is in the attachment and the the spec for the precision is as follows
Processor: i7 2720QM CPU @ 2.2 Hz (This is shown in 8 lines under Processors in Devise Manager.
Video card is NVIDIA Quadro 4000M
Memory is 16GB
Just curious if this noise I am hearing on the xi is normal. If not then I will need to return this and get something else.
Thanks for any information.
When rendering all cores are running at 100%.
That is your fans in the system and on the CPU cooler running to dissipate the heat.
I am pretty confident the @Xi systems do not use the best quality fans. The BOXX system I have runs at 4.75 ghz and is silent. It has a very big radiator for the cooling and very high quality fans to help with that.
Thanks for the input - as usual, you are prompt with responding.
Since I'm a novice at hardware - Do you think from looking at the spec for the @Xi that I can replace the fan? If so what type of fan would you suggest? I will be calling @Xi and ask for them to send me a better fan but I would like to know what should I ask for that is compatable with my system.
Thanks again for your input
When you are rendering open the case up on the @Xi and see which fans are noisy. Then check to see what the make and model is of the fans and do an Internet search.
Double ball bearing fans with blade technology that has been optimized for performance and low noise is what you want. Also they should be large in the 120mm range or more. Large fans can move a higher volume of air at lower rpm's, reducing noise.
While I was replying, you posted your message so I did not see it. If I am understanding this correct, The CPU is liquid cool and does not need a fan. Are the fan there just to cool the power supply and mother board etc?
If you have a chance post some pictures of the inside of your computer. Curious to see how it looks inside.
Here is what I got from the spec and I will call @Xi later when they are open. When I get home this afternoon I will take some pic and post them. This is my home computer.
That just shows how big the fans are. You want to look at the brand and model number of the fan, then do a Google search.
Here are the specs for the various fans installed on my computer that I got from @Xi Support. When I get home this afternoon, I will open the computer and take pictures of the fan inside of the computer. Let me know if this is adequate or if in your opinion I need to get bigger and better fans.
I worked with the support team at @Xi on the loudness of the fans and they had me download a Corsair monitoring software that monitor the fans, CPU, Processor etc. There was a setting that they had me changed on the fans from "Fixed RPM" to "Quiet" and now all is well when I do my rendering.
Thansk for all the help.
