How to debug a render time in Arnold?

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody! Share your methods of debugging a render time in houdini, how it can be registered for each frame. Perhaps there is a way to display the render time over the frame, for subsequent comparison? Thanks!

there is a Render Time aov that can be added to your image planes, as well as other debug aovs that show number of samples cast etc.

Unfortunately, this is not what I would like at this point. I cannot find anywhere else how to get the render time in seconds.

yeah that's what Mantra gives you - render time per bucket in seconds. slightly more convenient. in seconds you can only see total render time - printed as verbose in terminal/console.

I work on Windows and the total render time is not displayed in the log. But ideally, I would like to get time as in Mantra.
