Why is Mantra so Slow

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to learn shading and rendering in Houdini, but I've just set up a simple scene with just a sphere, and it's taking up to 20 minutes to render it?

Thanks

It renders within 5 seconds here...

Same here ...

EDIT: Actually I can render a FullHD frame full of clouds in 20 minutes ...

took 30s, even on my 8 years old macbook pro
yeah it's a bit noisy ok, but it has an extra ground plane, 2 lights and shaders :P

3 AA samples, max 4 rays, reflect limit 1, diffuse limit 2
1 environment light, 1 disk light

15 seconds in my computer with diffuse limit of 2 <_<<_<

but lets be honest,  mantra is not as fast as redshift, but matra is a "secure" renderer,  but now that we have a denoiser, i have more fait on this,   ive seen mantra and redshift on the "battlefield"  i can see the benefits of one and other.
