Hey I am fairly new to Blender and I was wondering:
How do I make my render go faster in Cycles? I saw something about a GPU which basically changes where the power of the render is going into. But I dont think my Macbook has that in it. Any ideas???

GPU rendering uses the Graphics Processing Unit of your graphics card for calculations. To do better than your computer's CPU, you need a rather beefy graphics card.

Thanks! I don't think I will be buying any card soon. But thanks for the input!
