Spiritual Awakenings
Description: This work took toooooo long to render. 6 days in total. I think I'll be upgrading my memory card & graphics card! This is my first try at people. It is also my first time at using a cube for my background. I kind of like the effects this gives. I also used the theme of earth, wind, and fire. Corny? Took me almost al long to name it as it did to render. Hope you enjoy!

Absolutely beautiful! The poses, the colours, the light, the background. I love everything. I have to give you a 5/5, just can't help it. Great!

wow nice job, you really thought this one through, the colors are very nice and composition is excellent, 5/5 for sure.

Also, graphics card and memory don't affect render speed, you need to upgrade CPU. However if a scene is too large for the RAM then you need to upgrade that too.

CPU

Gat is absolutely right. The CPU is the Central Processing Unit and that's the chip that does the bulk of the job, the rest is less important as far as render speed is concerned. The faster the CPU can clock operations through it, the faster - well, you guess it. A 3 GHz CPU renders about doulble as fast as a 1.5 GHz one, a dual core increases the speed for another 60% or so. Though the way I put this GHz clock business here is not completely correct, it is a good approximation to go by.

Can I replace the chip or do I need a new unit?

Unfortunately I don't know, but I think that you would have to buy a new computer

Holy Crap are you getting good! 5/5 all day long! Those colors are excellent. Your lighting is exceptional. The colored lights are doing an excellent job. White lights would have failed you miserably. You have no haze at all, the right choice for an indoor scene. As gat says it is very well thought out and works incredibly well. There is no criticsm to offer because the goals you set out to meet seem to have been met. David's fire looks awesome. The specularity on the planet Earth tells me that the light sources are color tinted and I like that alot. The material choice used for the human models functions very well. Refelctions are done very well in bryce. Shiny objects look pretty realistic in bryce. The scene feels of realism even though it clearly isn't. Very good lighting, bright and effective!

Six days seems to be about average for your recent renders...all of which have been amazing. Your quality of work demonstrates your hard work, meaning that all that render time was not wasted and to me the results justify the time spent waiting. I know that when I have week long renders I find myself looking at the image a few thousand times wishing that darn line would just drop a bit more, just one more percent before I go to bed, yet another night. Thousands of good ideas occur during those renders but for fear of overwhelming the computer I hold off starting new projects that themselves could also become complex. Anyhow, It's nice to see what you can accomplish once you really go all out and not let the render times intimidate you. Six days is a long render though, but not every project will demand or merit that kind of time investment. 5/5!!!!

Tina awakened me spiritually, no doubt! Six days equals 6/5 I guess :) The way you recreated the Wind element caught my attention the most. Earth and fire are more or less known and possible to create but the wind (something immaterial) is not for anyone to handle. I saying that you know what you're doing, you're getting better. All the colors, the combination of posed characters, the placement of each object speaks of a talented artist. I wonder if the use of David's frosted mirror mat applied on the floor will improve your work in a way, and it hard to improve such an image. Vote!

Very nice, I could only echo Richter's remark about the floor. Poses look natural and convincing, I just wish the woman had hair..

Well done! Figure work is very difficult, with the added disadvantage that the figure models themselves occupy a lot of ram and cause everything to go extra sluggish. I don't recognise the fire, I think that is one of the stock mats. Certainly a good choice of colours and composition, I wonder what happened to water? If the theme is elemental? Never mind, that's only thought. A more useful one is that you should submitt this to the DAZ bryce gallery. Yes, 5/5.

Render speed. Well, CPU certainly helps with raw number crunching power, but if you are running say XP and only have say 250mb of ram, then your first consideration should be to increase the ammount of memory you have. If you are running XP then you can pull up the task manager and contemplate the processor and disc activity, if when rendering the processor is underused and the HD is working continuously - you've got memory issues, if on the other hand, you've plenty of memory but the CPU is working 100% then that is where the bottleneck. If you have duel core or hyperthreading processor then you need to set your priority up to "high" in bryce 6.1 to get the most out of it.

I do have windows xp. I just installed 2GB memory stick. I do have duel core. I don't know alot about specs but I'm learning fast. I love working with my Bryce. I just don't like the long wait! Thankyou David for your comments and technical advise : )
