Todays post will be slightly in the area of Tech nerdyness. Sorry to all of you who don’t care about those things…
In my Dell I have a graphics card that is great for CAD programs. These are programs that you use to build 3D files. I just installed another kind of program that is a rendering program that you use for making awesome pictures and animations based on the 3D files. Some of the best rendering programs, including the one I’m trying now, need a different graphics card to work fast enough. In not so many words: my dell is great for building 3D files, but not for making the 3D pictures I want.
The cost of my CAD optimized card is that the pictures take ages to make – the visualization above took several hours, which is completely unacceptable. The cost of switching cards so that I would optimize for the pictures instead of the building would strangely enough be very little, while having that visualization done in minutes. Today I’m wondering if a laptop built for entrepreneurs like my self demands a Graphic Card switch.
Just for the fun of it I though it might be in place to share some more of my early attempts to master a new rendering program:
