I've finally got enough of the good stuff into my Octane to actually try out Maya properly (Go V12!). I've got a few teething troubles as I'm coming at it from much later versions. Obviously there's a load of stuff that just isn't there but hopefully there's a way of getting round some of these things.
So, my question is, in the render view, in later versions it gives you a render time after the image is completed, but not in 6.5 IRIX. Is there a way of measuring this? My dual 300 needs all the optimization that it can get, so it would be good to be able to quantify any changes a little bit more scientifically than 'that felt faster'.
