    Phil's Recommended Render Settings as of April 2017
    1. For still images render 2000 pixels wide for still images destined for the screen, use 4000 pixels wide for printing larger than 11x17". Both can be adjusted - but make sure you need to go up, and consider that the larger the slower. Or the larger the less time your processor spends dialing in quality.

    2. For animations use fewer pixels - probably 800-1000 pixels wide.
    3. When rendering based on time (safest for deadlines,) use no less than 30 minutes on a laptop or 15 minutes on a Mac Pro or desktop machine. But how it looks is the proper test - use the minimum amount of time you can get away with to achieve smooth, sharp images with the effects (like DOF and caustics) rendering at high quality. Higher numbers are slower but higher quality.

Higher numbers are slower but higher quality.
    4. When rendering based on samples - start at 64, test, if it doesn't look good enough go to 128, then 256, then 512 samples. You can't predict how long this will take on your laptop or on the network queue - so always test first for quality and time. Higher numbers are slower but higher quality.
    5. When rendering based on advanced quality try 24 samples, 12 ray bounces, DOF and caustics at 2, if you are doing an animation set shadow to 2. Test this, see how good everything looks and how long it takes - then adjust up or down from these numbers from here. Higher numbers are slower but higher quality.
