Download the archive above, unzip it, open your formZ Application folder, and run the formZ Imager application.
Click the Add button at the lower left corner of the Imager Set, select the .FMZ file, and add the Interior View.
Change the Rendering Type to RenderZone, and click Generate. When the rendering finishes, double click on the Complete Status, and the render time will be displayed. Post this time, along with the OS, processor, and speed of the processor. We will tabulate the results in the following post.
EDIT 1 -- Please post your statistics just as we have below so we can copy and paste from your postings into the Results thread...
EDIT 2 -- We will assume that you are testing with formZ v8 (which is somewhat faster than older versions) unless you specify otherwise…
(A v7 file was added to the download folder.)
EDIT 3 -- Please only post your results in this thread. If you have any comments, please post them here:
