Render is really slow

Postby mm8870 » Fri Nov 09, 2012 8:16 pm

Hi, I have been using blender for a little while, but have never experienced the render being so slow. I am doing a still image that requires a lot of detail so I have a few levels of subsurf on a model of text that makes it pretty high poly. Its an ice block text that has raytrace transparency and raytrace shadows. I feel like im doing something wrong because one image took me 10 hours to finish. Does anyone know how I can speed up this process? if I bake any elements or anything??? its really slowing down my progress

Thank you!
:) :)
