So I have looked at many of the posts concerning 2009 rendering problems and have a few questions...

I have a grocery store project due in a week and am gonna need about 5-6 interior renderings and 1 exterior rendering. There is alot of glossy materials, lots of details, tons of lights, etc. And since I'm new to Revit I'm sure I'm going to see quite a few mistakes once I see everything rendered. I do most of my Revit work at home on a crappy laptop but have figured that I'll need to do my rendering on a school computer. I don't have hours and hours to sit there while it renders... I'm looking for a decent rendering but it doesn't need to be perfect, any suggestions? Also, when I go to save the image file, is there anything special I need to know if I'm planning on resizing and printing out the pics at a Kinko's? Mainly the time issue is worrying me.... any ideas or suggestions would help, I feel clueless!

"...since I'm new to Revit I'm sure I'm going to see quite a few mistakes once I see everything rendered." Look sg1282, before you do your final renderings, you can check your mistakes before, rendering your model(s) in a Low Quality and Screen resolution, so you won't be waiting too much but only a few seconds to see the results (see image). 

"I'm looking for a decent rendering but it doesn't need to be perfect...", then change the quality to Medium, depending on your model, it'll take minutes to render....good luck.

Also, set your views up and do low quality renderings to chek for mistakes as Erland73 suggests and do higher quality renderings overnight,  This should give you sufficient time for reasonable quality renderings.  Export them from the render window as a tif.  You will get much better images.

Hi sg, i just wanted to add to tim's reply.  TIFFs are definitely the way to go.  Not only will you get better quality but you can change your background sky in photoshop.  The alpha channel is saved in the TIFF.  With your rendering open in photoshop go to the Select menu--> Load Selection.  Make sure you specify you're loading the alpha channel in the drop down menu.  Hit 'curse +ctrl+I' to inverse the selection to the background, and done.
