Combustion is running a little less than 4 seconds per frame for rendering 1080p24. That's one mask, one particle emitter, and a comp. A pretty simple piece, really. It's about 60 seconds long, so 1440 frames (24 frames/sec.). Estimated time is 1 hr 20 minutes: some frames render faster, so the average frame render time is about 2.9 seconds.

This is why I should set up the render farm. I could in theory have six machines working on the render so I could finish it considerably faster-- like ten or fifteen minutes instead of over an hour. That's the theory anyway.
