Way to speed up multiple-light renders?
I have an i7 920 for my processor and an AMD 4800 for a videocard. It was pretty high-end when I bought it... 2 years ago. Is there a way for this machine to take less time in rendering? For example, when I load up pretty much any detailed scene with included lights (Enchanted Forest), it takes up to 30 minutes for 1 render!
I like to create small animations and comic book stuff. 30 minute renders aren't really an option.
