Hi, when i create an animation, the rendering process is lasting 2 minutes and the movie has just 10 seconds. I think if i create a 10 minutes movie the process will be lasting 1 day.
How can i create the animation faster? (maximum 1 hour for a 10 minutes movie)
Could very well be, it has to render each frame: Frame Rate x Animation Time x time it takes to render each Frame = Job Time
If you have a killer system with lots of cores, this can be rather quick. A slow system with few cores, it may take a while. Depending on the amount of your system memory, it could kill your system.
Less lights will help, lower resolution. I have some 30 sec HD renderings in Showcase that take 45 min on my system.
Trying to render a single continuous "beauty shot" style animation can also take longer than a series of sequential 10-30 second shots. The latter also makes it easier to fix problems.

Don't even try to animate a 10 minute sequence.
I recommend 30 seconds at most and then stitch together in something like MS MovieMaker.
My last render project ran at 3-4 output frames per minute. At 24 frames/sec movie speed, a 10 sec movie would take between 60 and 80 min to render. A minute of movie would take between 6-8 hrs to render.
I rendered out to jpg files at 1280 x 720 and used Windows Movie Maker to stitch them into a clip. I kept the transations between moves in my animation to 1/2 a second or less (12 frames or so) and adjusted the timeline in Movie Maker to get the correct delay. This also allowed me to only render changed animation sequences rather than the whole when my customer requested changes.
I used Inventor Studio. Next time I might try showcase.
