Question ... Compromise: From the default Super High Quality settings, what would some one who knows change first, second etc, to maintain as best image quality as possible but allow the machine a chance.
I suggest changing the stochastic antialiasing to geometric, aa level 3 and
aa threshold 20. Stochastic aa is probably not needed in such a super high
If you have lots of glass objects, increasing recursion threshold from 4 to,
say, 20 will probably speed up rendering a lot.
