Is this render time normal? (Noob Q.)

Recommended Posts

10 Cores shouldn't be this slow?..Should it?

 

(also hair details don't seem to show here? any ideas)

Hair generation can take a while upfront depending on the settings. My guess is your hair settings are too aggressive (like the density).

Hey man, thanks. Though my density isn't even that high. I was following this tutorial where she puts the density up to 3000 (ive placed the clip at the point she does this so no need to scroll the TL

) and it updates instantly. Mine struggles to render it and i'm running a 6950x. Could it be that she's using a GPU renderer? Or perhaps i've not configured the software properly (or something?) As a noob i keep thinking i've missed some vital settings configuration.

Check your geometry scale - it will seriously affect how the density is calculated.

I think you may be right - literally just twigged that this might be it.

Attached is the top view of a hat for a character. You can see the scale of it in relation to the x axis just above it (in between -63 and -62).  In your opinion, is this size ok (for a hat)?

Well, if you put down a standard box, that should represent 1m x 1m that you could use as scale reference.
Looking at your screenshot, I'd say that's a pretty big hat, around a meter squared - if those units on your grid are at meter scale.

Incorrect scale can cause problems for DOPs / Cloth / volumes and also rendering, so It's not a bad idea to have a human model that is scaled correctly in Houdini units, that you can reference.

Hope that helps!
Matt.

That is incredibly helpful.  I was scratching around in the dark for days not understanding, but knowing that the cube is 1m x 1m and those units are in meters...v helpful.  Cheers mate

p.s i was working with an object around 50 times that size before, so it's no wonder it felt like i had a potato for a cpu
