Black hole render specs …

TEST RENDER
This is a test render of my private black hole project. I rendered a short animation with 225 frames.

Technical specs:
COMPUTER:
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

SCENE:
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
NO Hypernurbs
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:

Standard: 8.54 min.

Settings:

Physical –> Adaptive: 1hour 30 min.

Settings:

Physical –> Progressive: 6 passes 1hour 10min.

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.
