This is a test render of my private black hole project. I rendered a short animation with 225 frames.
iMac 27″ 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7
8 GB Ram 1067 MHz DDR3
ATI Radeon HD 4850 512 MB
Mac OSX Lion 10.7.2
Cinema R13 Studio
800×450 pix –> 16:9
6 cloner (spline object) objects with a count of 42228 clones of 296 rocks = 12.499.488 rocks
low poly rocks & spheres
4 Lights –> 2 with raytraced and 2 with area shadowing –> 3 with volumetric visible light
Full scene 1000 frames
Test animation 225 frames –> render time 14 hours 7 minutes with standard renderer, GI and AO on low.
THE STILL RESULTS:
Physical –> Adaptive: 1hour 30 min.
Final animation rendering:
So now I have to rethink my project to add all the post effects and
create a final cam motion to make it look better.
