"so they don't have to be recalced/drawn if not needed"
So basically it will check whether the object/light/camera have moved, and
if not then it wont redraw, right?
If I need to turn it off so it doesn't redraw even if it theoretically
should, will I be able to do that too?
And the other thing i mentioned, specifying faces to be redrawn, i hope that
will be possible too.
Just my 2 cents.
I'll look into the renderlayers.
It's layers of geometry though, right?
And since the camera will constantly be moving it wouldn't really help in my
case, if i understand it right?
I haven't run any speed comparison between the engines.. But now that you
mention it I've actually been thinking of doing that.
Thanks a lot for the reply =)
