Shaderlight rendering time/statistics

I am a relatively new Shaderlight user.  Trying to figure out if it is possible to to get rendering statistics from the use of Shaderlight.  Example: when I return to work in the morning, how long did my rendering run last night?  Does Shaderlight have the ability to log the duration of time that a rendering took to create?

Thank you for you time/assistance.

Hi Brian,

Try viewing the message window (View->message window) to see a history of actions - the last line or so usually has the render time.

Cheers,

Andrew

Follow up question/translation needed.

FROM SHADERLIGHT MESSAGE WINDOW:
2015-Apr-23 05:48:48 Started rendering
...
many lines of text
...
Rendering Time 24978.6


I have multiple questions:
1. I started the rendering around 11:00pm last night, not 5:48?
2. what unit is 24978.6?
3. is it seconds? 24978 seconds = 6.93 hours

Hi Brian,

My understanding is that the render time unit is seconds. 

I’m not sure why the start time didn’t match.  Maybe it uses a different timezone?  I’ll let Shaderlight answer that.

Also, I searched in Shaderlight subdirectories… is there a rendering log/txt file where the message window text is saved?
