    Walkthrough rendering quality & size

    I'm working on a walkthrough rendering at the moment (exterior of a shopping center) and the render quality isn't spectacular and the file sizes are gargantuan. Other than exporting to 3DS (which we don't have atm) is there anything I can do to help improve the quality and get the output to be less than 1GB? I currently have it processing at Best / Rendering settings on another PC and will see how it looks once its done but the initial results haven't been great. We have done quite a few similar jobs in SketchUp and the results have been fairly good and reasonably sized output. I know I can export to SU but I'd rather not have to if possible.

    Render to images (jpg) and create the movie in windows movie maker. Way more control for walking speed and the file size drops about 95%...

      And you don't have to worry about your computer getting shut down mid saving...

      I utilize all the computers I can get and have them exporting all the frames to jpg... Since you can specify a start and end you can divvy up the job...get done a lot faster.

        Thanks. The .avi was STILL running this morning when I got in - I'm saving out jpgs now and it's flying - albeit at a lower resolution than the .avi was.

        Hopefully this will make the boss happier too :banghead:

          The resolution can be adjusted if I'm not mistaking. I'd have to check on how to do this though...

            In the rendering options you can set the pixel size. I misspoke and meant a lower detail level in the visual style (Shaded vs Rendering.)

            It took about 45 minutes to run all the images and combine them in Movie Maker with a 20Mb file versus 12+ hours in Revit and a 2GB file.

              Well, you CAN also render out the entire thing... Don't know if it will get you there in 45min though. Probably not... :laugh:
              Anyway, glad it helped...
