To my shame, i have to take back some of the things i said in my last post… i decided it’s gonna be worth investing in a new machine for doing my personal projects. It’s pretty amzing how cheap a 2.66ghz quadcore with 4gigs of ram is nowadays, especially if you didn’t check prices for a while.
So what’s left to decide now is what to do with a 3x increase in render speed. It’s either rendering in 3 minutes now or rendering 3 times as much stuff. I guess history should tell us that it’s inevitably the latter. Oh and actually it’s 4x because i will keep using the good old laptop. Just need another Houdini HD license!
