dunno if this is possiable at the price but worth and ask i, doing some rendering using Vray and my desktop sucks so i need a laptop that can handle doing some decent renders in a ok amount of time (only so much cross words you cna do why waiting for a render that has took for ever)

please can people who comment no leave comments like dream on or such as there no helpfull and makes the site seem like its full of smart Alexs its a fair qustion.


thanks

Darren

does it have to be a laptop? as you might want to look in to updating your desktop a bit. Might be cheaper that way.
#2
daz... what sort of specification would you require? or the minimum requirements? I am not too sure what rendering requires - more processor power or more ram?
#3
Rendering needs as fast a processor as possible. I believe that Vray has multicore support. So ideally you would want as fast a processor as possible, with as many cores as possible.

I am sure you already know the answer, in a laptop, for £200...no
#4
the desktop needs to got as i need space in my house im afraid.

i think proceesor plays a small part but Ram is the killer and if its with a shared graphics card it sucks your ram so half decent processor and as much ram as poss me thinks i say £200 ish meaning maybe cloaser to £250 but im strapped as im on holiday for a month in a few weeks.

it dosnt need to be able to knock toy story out in 10 mins it just needs to do nice renders in a resonable amount of time without crashing

Daz... not sure of any shops but I may have an almost brand new HP tc4200 tablet with 2gb of ram. Google search shows that it sells for £1000+.

If I can locate it then I would be selling for £250ish... if interested then let me know otherwise may post a new thread on here soon.

Thanks.

neither processing power nor RAM are going to drastically improve render times via vRAY.

If you want a cheap alternative buy yourself a cruddy little desktop with a VooDoo 3000 or something and set it up as a rendering station. Same time frame to render (give or take a minute or two) but you'll be able to at least play around with your main desktop.

Or course if you're rendering is taking hours upon hours for something simple you may want to look around for some tutorials on correct photon simulation using vRAY materials - very common mistakes to be made in setting up the materials and rendering config itself. If you know what you're doing you can get the same kind of image quality from far fewer passes / bounces and decent material setups. Do you use the rule of three for lighting rigs?

i have a lot of Standard light rigs given to me of people who are clued up and a lot of the correct setting files for the render setting itself and a have a average knowledge and access to people who know plenty it is definatly the computer as i have render the same scene on a decent laptop and it like the preverble "poo and shovel combo"

thanks for help tho rep added :)
