Render times are slow, not usable.
Render times are way to slow. If I render a simluaur scene in Cinema 4D, it takes only 1,5 - 2 minutes instead of forever...
We are continuing to work on improving the render times in Dimension.

This is a real pain for me too..... I abandoned so many high quality ones as it seemed like it crashed as there was not even the preview starting to build up like it does in a low quality render. I'm currently trying a .PNG to see if this is going to help but 4hr16mins in and its still not doing anything other than just being an expensive timer at the moment.
I'll leave it overnight but for sure its not very good. A shame I've used it several times on projects but have to sort of come up with an elaborate excuse why I cant show anything bigger or clearer but just low quality renders.
@Kalla - for blurry renders this is usually caused by a usability issue. Go to Design Mode, Select the Environment (in the Scene Panel) and then in the properties turn off Depth of Field. If you have Depth of Field on be sure to open the render preview window to configure it while you're in design mode as the depth of field blur effect can't currently be visualized in the design canvas.

I rendered in low and medium and both came out blurry. The high has been rendering for a while now. I am bummed because minus the rendering (which is the most important part) its a kickass application. :(
I have 64 gb of ram on a mac pro and it is taking quite a while as well.
Renders take way too long. Even set at low quality, the very basic scene I designed was taking over 5 hours to render. This is useless for getting anything done in the real world.
Hi Bryan! Faster rendering has been a key focus for us this cycle and the next release shows marked improvements. Can't announce a release date, but should be soon for an update!
Currently we've benchmarked only the low setting which we've seen an average 95% improvement in final render times.
Please note that it's % based and still highly reliant on your hardware and that high quality is still significantly slower than low.
Any progress or ETA on this? I'd like to work on some projects in Felix but just can't wait hours for them to render. Anything you can share on what we can expect render times to be or how much of an improvement will be seen?
Rendering never ends
Yep, render times are slow atm, a low res 1024x768 PNG export took about an hour. As Jeanette said hopefully the performance improves as more builds are released.

Render speed increased, very slow and still really grainy.
