"Yeah-- I understand.  I just think you may find you have a similar problem in this new engine with trying to estimate how many passes will be good enough.   That can vary a lot. You're always going have some error, allocating…"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"The problem is when I'm running several renders over a weekend. How will I know how much time to allocate to each one? I wouldn't want them to run for the same amount of time, as one may over-cook to no extra benefit, while another is…"

"It's an easy feature to add, but I'm pretty sure with this new version you'll find a time constraint to be more reliable.  The rendering below is probably done already, with a noise filter, or close to it."

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Yes, that works now, though a bit glitchy. Dragging and dropping materials doesn't work (is it supposed to?)."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Found it-- it's not working properly if the palette is docked.  For now if you drag the AccuRender Studio palette and make it floating everything works.  I'll see what I can do."
