So, i pretty much hate rendering. It's lame and takes too long haha PLUS it lies to you most of the time: "Writing video... Estimated time: 27mins." mhmmm, and 1 hour later it's still not done.

Anyone, familiar with my pain of waiting? xP

I can't say I have ever rendered anything, but I share your pain.

I finally got a new computer this year, but up until then it was the family's computer I used... and it would say "15 minutes remaining" on certain things... come back in 10 and it says 13.... then come back in 20 and it says... 33???? !!!!

Yeah, when we got this one we threw the old one out
I kicked it a few times first...

Do you have a dedicated computer for it?

It's a lot less painful, even if it may be slower-- just get a junker computer, set it up to do that and only that, and let it grind away while you ignore it.

Yeah, my husband sometimes uses 3d studio max for somethings. He uses it less now if he can possibly get the same modeled look any other way. :)
