I have been struggling with a new model that a client sent to me. I would love to use Maxwell to render it out but I can not seem to get it to render at a decent speed even in Fire. It is a 128 meg file that I have tried to clean up as best as possible but Fire takes about 20 minutes to render a snapshot. Simple materials (best possible match) and one simple Sky Dome light. That image is cropped oddly as well. FYI I am using Dual 2.6 Xeon 10 core processors with 64 megs of ram and a good video card. Form.z 8.5 beta pro using the latest driver from this morning. I also found that Form.z 8.0.2 is considerably faster but still way too slow. What would be the best way to send this file to you to see if it is corrupted somehow?
I need to figure this out so that I can work with this client on a regular basis as all their models will be created in this way.
