    Hi everyone

    I’m hoping I’ve messed up. I’m trying to render out a fast moving animation in C4D r10 with a couple of multipass objects. I’ve also wanted to make use of depth of field, lens effects, object glow and scene motion blur.

    I’m a relative newcomer to C4d, so apologies right now if I’m getting what I asked for, but I was quite surpised when each file took 16 passes to produce. I used to have C4d r9 and don’t remember the effects tab in render settings. Each file seemed to take 3 passes (one for the video and one each for the multipass)

    The result is that my overnight render was only a third of the way through the entire sequence (thank goodness I was using image sequences rather than a single file). Is there something I can be doing to speed up the process, or are these passes the result of everything I’m asking it to do.

    Thanks very much for the speedy reply. It was right there staring me in the face as soon as you said.
