Latest Junk Picture

I just finished this little beauty this morning. Note the ropes and the pylon. It took FIVE HOURS, THREE MINUTES AND TWO SECONDS to render! That was with a number of time-wasting options enabled, particularly the Rope functions.

I suppose there are no shortcuts you could take to drop the render time, eh?

While building the picture, I cut out as much as possible of the slow stuff - the ropes are particularly slow - and just go for shape, using my laptop. That picture, without the ropes and radiosity, renders in a few minutes. Then I set up a group of renders and run them in batch on my fastest machine
