Increased speed results

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, February 1, 2016, In : General 
Hey all!

Today I posted a solid article about increasing your render speed in Blender Render - so just to help you out, I put together a project that is just a burst and that will show you the difference when you apply some of what what's written to a render vs not doing so. So first the image without the applicable tricks applied:

Render time: 4 minutes

Image with speed-up tricks applied:

Render time: 31seconds

The main differences are:
 - A little more noisy if you check it out at full resolution...

When the head started taking shape

Basic body shape and wings

Toon material on full view with subsurf and freestyle

Hey all!

As this has been something I've been working on for quite some time, I'm writing a post on the subject. So, here goes.
