WorldBuilder-3DS Max communication tutorial

Skill Level: Intermediate / Views: 509

The Max communicator of WorldBuilder is a great way to integrate the best of the 2 software packages in 1 render.The main advantage of this is that we can use the flexible material editor of Max in combination withthe landscape capabilities of WorldBuilder. There is of course the possibility of importing 3DS models in WorldBuilder, but that means we have to convert every single part of the imported Max materials to WorldBuilder materials and adjusting the phong photometry of every part separatly.This can be done with simple models, but for more complex models the Max communicator is the bestsolution.I made a greenhouse model in Max for this scene which we will use to make the following setting:- A camera will be inside the greenhouse and have a view of the plants inside and the landscape outside. - We will use small landscapes for the flowerbeds in the greenhouse.- We will create shadows and reflections of both WorldBuilder and Max objects in the scene.

Vue Render Quality versus Render Speed - Charm3D

Skill Level: Intermediate / Views: 840 / System Requirements: Vue 6

Tutorial on finding the right balance between Quality and render speed, based on several years of experience and a lot of experimenting.One misunderstanding of Vue is that quality, and thus render speed, is the result of the render settings only. But actually a lot of settings throughout the interface influence the final outcome. My intention here is to give you some ideas and tricks to use to determine quality versus render time.
