I rendered it the other day in Reality in Poser, and I didn’t notice extended render times. Were you rendering the hair too?
The latest picture I am working on is pretty intense in terms of amount of figures and lights. But if I hide the Long Dead figure it cuts my rendering down by easily over half the time. My initial draft/proof renders normally don’t take longer than 10-15 mins give or take. In my last render (Santa Claus vs. Zombie Apocalypse in the Gallery) I used Long Dead and duplicated the node for a few more of them in the background. Pretty long render time. I also noticed that the specularity on this character is really high. The figure literally looked like it was glowing compared to everything else in the scene.
