To speed up rendering, turn off the preview. Once you are fairly happy that the preview is looking more or less as you want it, just turn it off (uncheck the preview box). You should find that this makes rendering a little faster.

Also make sure that none of the SU windows are on the top of the main SU. Ideally close all SU windows.

Hmm, I always assumed that by closing SU, you'd also close Podium. Was I wrong? If so, great. Any tip that'll help increase render speed is more than welcome, since speed is one of the main reasons I use Podium.

If I wanted lengthy render times, I'd use Maxwell.

SU windows = all windows that are created from Windows menu (components, materials, layers, outliner, ...).
if you close main SU window it will close Podium as well.

I also close my model in sketchup. Create a new file. Once you get into ray tracing in podium it does not need the model since the model is loaded into podium.

Tuts3D: If the model is huge, im taking a 30 MB sketch-up file it does seem to help.

no possibility to fix the cause of this behaviour instead of all of us working around the symptoms?

I'm thinking that the multi core support that will be in the next version should speed things up ( for the multi core owners). Till then those are all great tips...any little bit you can speed thing's up when your renders take forever, helps!
