umm it took about a day or 2 to simulate the fire
and the render actually wasnt too bad, it was maybe 6 hours all up :)

holy that is LONG! which must make you wonder how or what they use use to render the full blown CG movies.... like avatar :D
Reply
:iconaffet-kak:
nah thats not very long
especially compared to movies like you said, they have render times of a few days to a few weeks PER FRAME
and that is on a render farm of a few thousand CPUs (4000 or so for industrial light and magic!)
its crazy what those guys do!

how did you get your avatar?
well if i end up with something that takes ages, i leave it on overnight
and switch it to low priority in task manager so i can still work on other projects :)

I made my avatar!
And that would probably be wise. in maya, you can choose how many cores you use to render. so if you have a quad core computer, you can use 3 cores to render and 1 core for normal stuff :)

yeah you can do that with task manager in processes, but if your not fully using that core i feel its going to waste :(
so if the render is low priority, it will get whatever your not using :)
i used to disable core use, but i would always forget to put it back. annoyting when you take a look in the morning and its not done when it should be :(

actually i meant how did you use your avatar in a message? what do you type? just wondering
