Autodesk Showcase Question

Is there a way, or what is the best file format so that when doing renders of large assemblies Showcase doesnt turn so slow and it doesnt screw with your grafics card?

The best thing you can do is disable ray tracing for as long as you are setting up your scene before the render. When you have everything set up you can re-enable it.

I usually dont use the ray tracing.

I was trying to put three assemblies on the scene and it was just way to slow, and then the graphics card started acting up. So i'm trying to figure out if i can bring those assemblies in maybe in a different format, so they are not as heavy.

I usually bring in all my models at low resolution - I think it's called large details, with ray tracing disabled to set the scene Then when the scene is ready switching to higher detail (small details I think) and turn on ray tracing before rendering.

That seemed to make the most difference on my old computer - I haven't done much rendering on my new workstation, but I expect it will work the same.

Note to add when leaving showcase it will put inventor into compatibility mode with software drivers. At least it did on my old computer
