i have a scene with three character full of fur, made with c4d hair. everything works fine until i want to export the scene as .ass for my renderfarm. i use for that the command line option. here my command:
c4d -nogui -arnoldAssExport scene=currentFile;filename=assName_####.ass;compressed;exportType=0
it takes over an hour to write one frame to disk. why is it so slow? what could be the problem?
what kind of resources is needed for the export? CPU, RAM, DISK? how can i make my machine faster?
if i start the IPR it only takes 5 minutes until the export is done and the render starts. and if i start the normal picture viewer it takes 20 minutes to start the render. why are there so big differences?
i'm testing now to the workflow to rendering with c4d command line and not with kick. but actually i don't want to buy c4d command line licenses, as well. and if it takes there 20 minutes there as well, it is not a big help...
many thanks for any help!!
