Solidworks Photoview 360 takes too much time for rendering animations
it took me 45 mins to record 10 second animation 7.5 fps, had a predator drone, one rotation, and animated firing of 4 missiles,,
my system i5 750 and 6 GB 1300 Mhz ram,
What resolution, render quality setting, number of lights (light sources)? Render one still image at the same setting and multiply it with the number of frames and time (in this case, 75 frames total) and check if it matches...
You could try scheduling the render. I think it would be "a little" faster. By the way, which version are you using? 2012?
