I have a simplistic model (4 parts, 10 or so screws) that I am trying to render an animation through using Studio with the lowest possible output settings, my concern is that the render time is extraordinary long even for the most basic of assembly, why is this ? I have also tried the animate when in an IPN file which does improve render time but the quality is not very good. I will now try using keyframe animation in Showcase to see if I can get an animation with good quality completed within the hour ! Has anyone else experience these VERY poor render times for basic animations or am I missing something here ?
Length of animation?
Post assembly here so others can test.
system specs -
processor - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz
RAM - 12GB
Windows 7 (64 bit)
length of animation is 40 seconds. it is a fly by of a 4 pump water pumping station.
i cannot upload the assembly due to work regulations.
What version of Inventor?
Have you installed all service packs?
Graphics card specs?
i don't believe there are any service packs available yet.
How about this Update (I haven't read what it actually covers -might not be anything for Studio).
Inventor 2013 64-BIt Edition SP1 Beta
HP Z400 3.07GHz, 12GB RAM
ATI FirePro V4800(FireGL)
I have checked this spec out with our IT company and through posts on the internet , this spec meets and more than exceeds the requirements of Inventor however the render time is still chronically slow, is this a problem with IV itself, I cannot wait 2 days for a simple render animation
I have now tried to render a 10 second video in Showcase with the Ray Tracing visual style set and this is taking an painful amount of time (35% completed - Elapsed time = 10 minutes), can anyone advise on how to improve this ?
