Difference between RenderTime and total time on all the tasks

Postby spearsc » Tue Sep 12, 2017 8:24 pm

I've been recording RenderTime from the JobEntry object.

renderTime = jobEntry.RenderTime.TotalSeconds

The total seconds for my test job is 104.734. However, when I go through and add up the times on the individual tasks, I get 79 seconds. The total seconds does seem to correlate to the start and finished Date/Time. I'm just curious where the extra 25 seconds went.

I believe the RenderTime doesn't account for the start up time. That would include things like copying scenes over and path mapping.

I couldn't find good detail for this in our user docs, so I've gone and added that as a dev request.
