Hello guys, I’m working on a new AE project that is visually simple as regards the amount of elements and use of plugins. Basically placeholders are distributed in 3D space with use of DOF ( I think that’s the point of my problem, DOF ) My Render time in FullHD is around 16 hours! My project has length of 2:30. I saw some other projects that have render time around 10/12 hours. But 16 I don’t saw before. It is no surprise to me this render time, many of you maybe have already done any work take longer than that. But the buyers understand this time? Do you think this a viable project with this render time?

In time, my computer is a core i7 860 with 8GB RAM NVidia Geforce GTS 250 .

Thank you guys.

You could always try to fake the DOF with some blur fx via masks etc, if it is a viable time investment :P It should speed up render times significantly.
