Render Time Estimation
Estimates the time to complete rendering on animations
UI location UV/Image Editor > Properties > Image
Usage While rendering, open the Properties region of the UV/Image Editor showing the render result. In the Image panel, you can read both both the total render time for your animation as well as the estimated time to completion of the render job. This information also prints to the terminal window.

Note that an accurate estimate requires at least the first frame of the animation to be rendered.
