I’ve been using Max/Vray for years, for me UE4 hasn’t been a serious consideration ‘till Ray Tracing was a thing. Before I buy a new RTX card I want to understand if this will save me from hours of light baking.
Staring with what I consider a simple / medium interior scene in Max, exported to Datasmith then into UE4.25 It’s taking several hours / medium light quality. (Currently using a GTX 970, i7 , 64gb) good results but if I make changes I gotta start baking again. So if I had an RTX card can I skip the bake? FPS be dammed. Looking for highest quality stills and animation for Archviz.
The second part would be to pick the right video card or the best value card for Ray Tracing. Otherwise do I still need to use a farm or dual Xeon for these bakes AND still also need RTX?
If you’re using UE4 for Archviz animations I’d like know your hardware setup.
