Hi, I'm planning to submit some 3d rendered images soon for approval. Would it be ok to upload them at the minimum size of 1600x1200, & then if they're accepted do the final 6000x4000 renders? I ask this because even a 1600 render is taking hours (I'm using heavily raytraced shaders & have a relatively old system), & a 6k render might take a day or longer, & don't want to waste that time on something that isn't suitable as stock.

Thanks

Well, there's waiting, then there's waiting.  If you do the small render, then you're probably going to wait several days (probably more than a week) to see if the first render passes.  If it does pass inspection, then you're going to wait to re-render at full size, then likely wait another inspection cycle for the new render to pass.  If I were you, I would just do the full render and just be done with it (for the good or the bad).


...but then again, if this is your only computer, then I imagine it will be fully occupied during the rendering process, leaving you without any computing power in the meantime.


Maybe you could to a "thumbnail size" render and post it in the critique forum to get other contributors' opinions as to the sellability of the image. Just a thought.
